In this session you will learn about the impact and art of creating lived experience 'Trigger Films' within a Participatory Action Research method called Experience Based Co-Design. The Improve:ACT project (Improving the experiences of Black African Caribbean men detained under the Mental Health Act) is one of four UK projects contributing to the government’s agenda to reform the Mental Health Act. We created films with ten Black African Caribbean men capturing their experience of detention under the Mental Health Act; raising concerns about coercive, inhumane practices. Researchers Alina Haines-Delmont, Abiola Brodrick and Elaine Craig will showcase some of Improve:ACTs trigger films and help you: 1) identify touch points within individual interviews; 2) learn to collate individual interviews into a collective voice trigger film; and 3) strategically plan how to use film methodologies to increase your research impact and place violence reduction centre stage of the political agenda in your country.
