Visual Community Organising

This research investigates the forms that grassroots community organising takes when it uses graphics and visuals both for internal work and external communication.  The research process involved interviews, participant observation and the gathering of visual material and texts produced by seven collectives (see poster).

As communities of practice, the collectives are usually composed of visual artists, activists and sociologists.  They work in solidarity with different communities against various forms of exploitation: they focus on gender violence and migrant labour while relating those to resource exploitation and climate change, framing their work within decolonial and emancipatory polities.  The research will present and analyse these collectives’ work in the form of a comic.
