Project Re•Vision is a Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) funded initiative which uses arts-based research methods of digital storytelling and drama to dismantle stereotypical understandings of disability and difference that create barriers to healthcare. Its unique methodology of putting on workshops that invite diversely-embodied stakeholders to create digital stories in the communities generated out of these groups sits at a nexus between the academy and the community, between professional and participatory arts and activism, and between critical disability studies and health research and practice. Since returning to the UK from Toronto I am not actively involved in the day-to-day work of project Re•Vision; however, I remain a research and writing collaborator. You can find our latest publications here.
Me and You is a digital story I produced as part of Project ReVision. You can see the film here.
