Participation in leadership: A critical analysis of participation in a youth-based collage workshop on HIV and AIDS in rural South Africa

Abstract:

The rural area of KwaZulu Natal province, South Africa, has the highest rates, globally, of HIV. In an effort to curb virus transmission, educating young people about HIV and AIDS, stigma, and gender-based violence issues in a contextually specific way is critical. Participatory arts-based education methods are seen as tools to engage young people as champions of sexual health amongst their peers and in their community. However, it is unclear how effective these types of methods are at actually engaging youth in this leadership role. In an effort to interrogate how participation methods support youth engagement in sexual health programming and leadership building, I will reflect on my own experiences facilitating HIV and AIDS collage workshops with high school students in rural South Africa. A review of the collage process will contextualize how participants are invited to engage in the workshop. Collage, as a method of engaging youth in sexual health education, worked well. During the process, participants expressed the social issues associated with risk activities. Analyzing what youth create (looking at the collages) sheds light on how youth represent their role in addressing HIV and AIDS. Looking at the collages produced during the workshop, youth perceive themselves victims of poverty and stigma in relation to HIV and AIDS. Their role as leaders in HIV education and sexual health rights, however, is less evident.
