For research to be genuinely representative of our social landscape, researchers need to be able to engage participants whose cultures and languages represent the diversity of Australia’s population. Yet social science research methods are not always equally or inviting or meaningful to everyone. Language barriers, unfamiliarity with research processes and caution interacting with strangers may all impact on recruitment and participation. This presentation will report on two projects which engaged successfully with socio-culturally diverse youth participants, each using participatory visual or media-based approaches. Insights from young people whose experiences are often rendered invisible owing to barriers to their participation in research will be shared.
