Tacchi, Jo A. & Watkins, Jerry J. (2007) ‘Participatory Research and Creative Engagement with ICTs'. In ACM Sensys 2007 workshop "Sensing on Everyday Mobile Phones in Support of Participatory Research", 6 November, the Sensys Conference Hotel, the Swissotel Sydney.


This paper reports preliminary findings from the Finding a Voice project, an ethnographic investigation into the development and consequences of participatory content creation programs in underserved communities in India, Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka. The project explores how information and communication technology can be used to enable both civic and cultural participation, and creative engagement within such communities. The research is informed by Ethnographic Action Research and Participatory Design methodologies, as well as observation of local communicative ecologies.
