Title
Family Photos: Digital Photography as Emancipatory Art Education in Montreal's Black Community
Abstract
This thesis documents a participatory action research project in which the author collaborated with a Caribbean-Canadian family of four to study their experiences of familial art education and photographic practice, and to generate recommendations for Emancipatory Art Education (EAE) in Montreal's Black community. Through studying and practicing photography as art, the author points out that family members develop technical skills and inclusive understandings of art, while increasingly expressing their own individual and collective aesthetic identities. The author contends that the EAE project emphasizes photographic practice as a site for exploring issues of identity, race and representation, and tensions between the private and the public. She makes recommendations geared toward EAE and addresses familial and intergenerational community art education; photography, ethics and boundary control; and participatory action research in community art education.
