Not leaving data in the dark: participatory archiving and visual data to address HIV and AIDS(NRF) (2012-2014)

De Lange N (Project Leader) Mitchell C, Moletsane R, Taylor M.

The overarching aim is to test out extending the existing digital archive containing our visual data, by linking it to visual data of other researchers working in the same area, and so doing generating “big data” allowing researchers to look across the data sets for emerging themes and issues.  The underlying aim is to open up the opportunity for participants in the rural community to engage in participatory archiving (and participatory analysis) enabling the community (teachers, learners, and community health workers) to address issues around HIV and AIDS in the community.
