I WAS HERE is a participatory action research project (PAR) which used photovoice and film as tools for self expression, communication and exploration. Young pregnant or parenting women with lived experience of homelessness learned to photoblog and use digital cameras to present their art work and their concrete ideas for social and political change. I WAS HERE is a project of the National Film Board of Canada’s Filmmaker-in-Residence program at St. Michael’s Hospital.
