A guide to creating diverse and inclusive image libraries for organisations in Australia.
Images influence the way we think and what we believe.
The Picture Change Diversity Image Library Guide was developed to help organisations use images as a way of addressing gender inequality and discrimination in the workplace and throughout the broader community.
In 2022, with the support of the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund, this guide was created as an actionable way to build on the information gleaned from Mitch’s 2020 study Photographers as Changemakers.
Enter your details below for access to download the Picture Change guide along with 2 example Image Audits, generously made public by Horsham Rural City Council and the Centre for Participation. These image audits will help you understand how to conduct your own audits to see what images you are showing and how you might be contributing to change, or perpetuating gender roles and stereotypes in your organisation. If you’d like assistance with an external contractor to conduct your image Audit, please contact Mitch for more information.
Thanks to all the organisations involved and a special thanks to Women’s Health Grampians, who’s time and expertise proved invaluable in the development of this guide.
This image audit was produced based on publications, plans, community newsletters, social media channels and various Horsham based websites provided by Horsham Rural City Council.
