The 2024 Hampton University Photovoice Research Exhibition is an opportunity for student researchers to amplify the lived experiences of Hampton University students and promote active engagement with university policymakers.

Photovoice is a qualitative research method that empowers communities to share their experiences and needs by combining focus groups, interviews, photo ethnography, and storytelling. Using this unique multimodal platform, student researchers highlight urgent disparities impacting the quality of life in Black communities and advocate for solutions that will better support students’ safety, self-care, and self-expression on campus.

Students will focus on one or a combination of the following exhibition tracks: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging. “Our Story” will exhibit how Photovoice projects move beyond the classroom to make a lasting impact!
