Visual participatory techniques add a valuable, dynamic layer to the process of impact measurement by prioritising the voices of specific groups and communities’ lived experiences. Quantitative data and indicators often insufficiently capture the nuances of a project’s impact and can significantly benefit from the insights of a qualitative approach. Visual participatory techniques such as photovoice and Photo-MSC directly involve those affected by a particular programme while capturing the ‘lived impact’ of programme activities and bringing results to life.
