Abstract

This session outlines the course of an arts-based community project, in which bereaved poverty-struck families and researchers collaborate in creating bereavement rituals. By means of this creative process, themes are addressed like children's positions as mourners, positions of bereaved poverty-struck families in society, meaning (re)construction and resilience. In this session, we want to relate the project's focus to relevant literature and practice, and examine the possibilities of translating the research findings into film to engage diverse audiences. Conference participants are invited to join us in discussing the above-mentioned themes and the usefulness of the project's design to effect social change.
