I have documented creativity workshops and collected ethnographic data for evaluation purpose through a method I call participatory scriptwriting. The main purpose with the method has been to reach an understanding of how the participants perceive their reality through synthesizing their impressions of the workshops in a short manuscript. When the workshop has ended they have acted according to the script while I have been filming. The workshops have had an aim to empower by facilitating the participants in reaching their creative potential. In this report I demonstrate how the ethnographic work has been carried out and the reason for choosing participatory scriptwriting as method for documentation and evaluation. Visual methods are effective since they both relate to our senses and include an imaginary audience in the social process. Participation is collaborative and reciprocal. Scriptwriting stimulates action. I argue that participatory visual methods are particularly applicable when used in settings where empowerment through emancipation is important aspects (Less)
