The options of this project were all really exciting. I cant help but think of the application of getting people exposed to Guam’s political status options. In just having open conversations with individuals this week on Guam’s political status many people wanted to know the options and benefits of them.
In this project I am proposing to inspire my audience with the photo voice project. I see this being the most beneficial to both the audience and my people of Guam, because of the direct connection it has on influencing and education the people of the island on the different political status options.
I will be focusing more on the “Independence” and “statehood” movement. Due to my affiliation with both parties. As a Social Worker I am not going to side with any particular movement, but allow myself to facilitate the information to better educate the audience as best as I can on the status options; with the help of participants.
I will be presenting this idea to these party groups via group chats on whatsapp utilizing random incentives I have collected over the past couple of months (free food).
Anyone interested in helping me out with a project for my grad school? I have a bunch of gift certificates/vouchers of various values as incentives.
All you have to do is:
-Take a picture of something that inspires you to side with the ____________ movement.
-write a blurb to communicate your thoughts to the reader
– (3-5) pictures with blurbs will get you a choice of one of the incentives as they are available.
Your pictures may stay anonymous if requested and published on my blog for school that is open to the public. The course is “decolonizing social work” at UH.
Deadline is Aug 20
The deadline is pushed to the 20th to gather and publish on one blog. I will not be censoring any of the submissions only to highlight thought process, influences, and/or lack of information.
My goal is to capture the essence of individuals/groups from Guam and their stance on the decolonization movement.
