Resilience in rural college communities – indigenous young women negotiate for better protection against gender-based violence.
Presenter: Deidre de Villiers (NWU, South Africa)
Introduction: By using visual participatory methods to identify and negotiate as a collective group for resources and to be better protected from gbv, a discourse of collaboration ensued.  The effectiveness of using participatory methods was clear but the outcome of the collaborative discourse will only be identified during the 2017 year.   
Methods: The participants(7) used a visual participatory method, particularly ‘draw and talk’; action briefs and making a no-editing required video.  The visual participatory method created a platform with which these young women could clearly articulate and this allowed them to identify various protective mechanisms which are available within their socio-ecological system, including self-defence classes, requesting a social media platform for discussions and support, community groups as a platform to teach these young women life skills and focus group discussions.
Findings: By using visual participatory methods to identify and negotiate as a collective group for resources and to be better protected from GBV, a discourse of collaboration ensued.  The effectiveness of using participatory methods was clear but the outcome of the collaborative discourse will only be identified during the 2017 year.
