Since 2006, the African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS) has explored the use of creative methodologies (e.g photography, creative writing, body mapping) with more traditional qualitative research methods in social science research. These projects engage in the co-production of knowledge through the development of partnerships with migrant groups, especially those who are under-represented and face multiple vulnerabilities. Such partnerships have included informal settlement residents, inner-city migrants and hostel residents, LGBTIQ asylum seekers, and migrant men, women and transgender persons engaged in the sex industry. These projects have culminated in a range of research and advocacy outputs, including community-based exhibitions, public exhibitions, engagement with officials and outreach into multi-media forums.
MoVE focuses on the development of visual and other involved methodologies to research the lived experiences of migrants in southern Africa.» » »
