PhotoVoice

“How has noise changed in your community or home during COVID-19?”

Want to participate in our newest PhotoVoice campaign?

Our Goals:

  • To create authentic discussion of the issues surrounding noise pollution and its effect on people and wildlife in vulnerable, underserved communities.
  • To increase understanding of the experiences with and impact of noise pollution for the participating communities and science.
  • To gather community perspectives and understanding to inform a co-created app and national community science project.

How to join the PhotoVoice research:

  • Think about the question: How has noise changed in your community or home during Covid 19?
  • Answer the question visually by taking a picture. Add a caption to each picture and upload it here or copy and paste the following url: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NoiseCovid

  • There are no right ways of doing this. It is deeply personal. You answer the question in the way that is right for YOU! You do not need to be a photographer or answer the question literally.
  • If you are taking pictures of people, please let them know that the photo is being used by the Community Perspectives Noise Pollution Researchers and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for research and educational purposes. The photos will be displayed on the noiseproject.org website and may be used in community shows, and educational material (print and online).
  • It’s important that you ask people being photographed to fill out a ‘Noise Pollution PhotoVoice Release.’ 
  • Be thoughtful and ethical about taking pictures. Ensure and respect people’s privacy and don’t put them or yourself in danger!

Take a look at the answers to the previous question: When our community thinks of silence, these are the images that come to their minds?
