Maggie O’Neill is Professor of Criminology in the Durham School of Applied Social Sciences and member of the steering group for the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action. In a recent presentation to affiliates of the Centre for Medical Humanities, Maggie discussed her latest participatory research project: Community, Politics and Resistance in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

The project explores ways of seeing the spaces and places of community through the eyes of DTES residents, and is a social research collaboration between AtiraEnterprising Women Making Art, Providing Alternatives Counseling & Education (PACE) Society, Megaphone, and United We Can and supported by the Community Arts Council of Vancouver and AHA MEDIA.

AHA Media images from the Community Arts Dialogue held in Vancouver on June 18 are available here and here, and offer a fascinating insight into Maggie’s work and in to some of the digital stories and images created by participants in the research.
