Look Beyond

'Look Beyond’, a photovoice research exhibition, was launched on 25th October 2017 in Smock Alley, Dublin.

Look Beyond is the work of 16 people with lived experience of mental health difficulties. The exhibition is currently on a national tour.

‘Look Beyond’ is an output of a photovoice research project commissioned by See Change and conducted by Dr. Maria Quinlan and Dr. Etáin Quigley from University College Dublin and Maynooth University.

See Change’s aim for ‘Look Beyond’ is to challenge people’s perceptions of mental health difficulties and to encourage positive conversation.

Giving voice to people lived experience

‘Look Beyond’ gives people who experience mental health difficulties a space to speak for themselves and by doing so, helps others to gain insight into what living with mental health difficulties feels like, and how relief, recovery and resilience can be found and nurtured.

What is 'photovoice'?

Photovoice is a research and advocacy methodology which uses photography as a way of giving voice to people who often feel unheard and unseen in society. It has been used internationally to both explore and raise awareness of the stigma associated with experiencing mental health problems.
