dc.description.abstractDuring this participatory Photovoice-based research project, we elicited the use of Photography and storytelling and observed the emergence of young learner-agency during moments of “unscripted” creative collaboration around the notion of place. Through the co-creation of a Photovoice workshop-experience with García, his staff, and students, I hoped to elicit youth representations of their lives in a Ticuna territory. Our goal was to research situated learning and multimodal composition, while developing an inclusive and collaborative ethnographical approach and fostering dialogue through Photography among young workshop participants. Luis García coordinates the Ayuda de Atención Integral /Arcoiris Foundation, which is an inclusive program that serves children and youth with learning differences in Leticia, at the confluence of rivers and crossroads of the triple border region that connects Peru, Brasil, and Colombia. Workshop participants used cameras as tools to map their life stories and environment.
