Reflecting on a range of qualitative research studies, this presentation considers the ways in which creative and visual approaches can be drawn on as both techniques of participatory data production and tools of dissemination. In these projects participants’ experiential accounts were facilitated by creative activities, which enabled them to reflect in detail on the micro interactions of their lives. This allowed space for thinking through their subjective, mundane, but important, experiences that operate alongside, and interact with, more structural changes. Research techniques included artefacts, collaging, drawing, photoeliciation, emotion stickers, timelines and sandboxing. The opportunities and limitations of creative approaches will be considered as well as the practicalities of ‘doing’ visual research in the field, and the associated implications for ethical practice.
