This presentation is an overview of community based participatory research methodologies. It draws on examples from work in St. James Town to illustrate the range of information that could be drawn using an arts-based participatory research method. The aim of this presentation is to illustrate how participatory research methodologies can be effectively used in research resistant communities for: 1) engaging and empowering marginalized populations; 2) enabling communities to advocate for social changes; and 3) developing new partnerships with stakeholders and initiating community-level changes.
