Rich Pictures: Encouraging Resilient Communities

Bell, Simon; Berg, Tessa and Morse, Stephen (2016). Rich Pictures: Encouraging Resilient Communities. Earthscan Tools for Community Planning. London: Routledge.



Rich Pictures focuses on the value of developing visual narratives – Rich Pictures – as an important component and starting point for community participation. A key device for the community to share ideas and perspectives on current and potential future situations, Rich Pictures provide a shared space for members to set out ideas and negotiate.

While Rich Pictures are widely and globally used, this is the first book discussing their use, and how and when to use this technique for maximum participatory value. A valuable read for community engagement professionals, planners, politicians, and members of affected communities, Rich Pictures is richly illustrated with examples and authors’ testimonials.
