Summary of Webinar 4

In this session, Harriet will share her experiences of using visual methods, including participant-led photography and Instagram.

Based on several field studies across hair salons, offices, and university buildings, Harriet will show how these methods can help us understand more about the lived experiences of organisational space and place.
