This study employs community action research and arts-based research to explore collaborative development of the women’s mobile photography community, Her Mind's Eye. Her Mind’s Eye is an exploratory, creative and contemporary women’s mobile photography community that exists both physically (through in-person meetings) and digitally (in online social media spaces). The group was designed to support women in learning and inquiring into mobile photography and new technologies within an encouraging, flexible, and supportive art creation community.
At the same time, it looks at the women’s uses of the social/mobile photographic medium itself, finding that it was used for: personal memory keeping, communication, jumpstarting relational connectedness, experiencing an increased sense of awareness of one's environment, and of others’ ways of seeing and being in cities. Through this community, we expanded the possibilities of collaborative and informal education, meeting in-person and on the social media platforms Facebook and Instagram. We found that these social media applications can be utilized to create “real life” connections between diverse individuals with like interests, in order to form city-based, digital/physical composite networks of people interested in creative photographic development. Simultaneously, we investigate how experiences of physical places (the cities of Montreal and Vancouver) can be shared in the digital world.
In addition to developing new networks and opportunities for creative growth, the group has a goal of exhibiting and promoting each woman’s artwork, and exploring women’s views and experiences of living in urban environments. Her Mind’s Eye held one exhibition during the time of this study, and several more afterwards. Lastly, it was found that the presence of group traits and structural supports similar to those within feminist pedagogy, such as an ethics of care, and sense of community, were fundamental to the successful operation of Her Mind’s Eye. Finally, having emerged from research origins, Her Mind’s Eye developed the unique form of a micro-SMP community, containing several clearly delineated boundaries, those of: group size, committed participation, and a defined focus. This made for a very successful community of inquiry and creativity, which however, poses questions for long-term group sustainability.
