Project Resilience brings together research undertaken by teams of international researchers who use creative, usually visual, methods to understand and celebrate how people meet the challenges of their lives. The University of Leeds has brought together many different organisations to collaborate in this work. We are funded by UK research councils, including the Economic and Social Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council and within funding streams such as the Global Challenges Research Fund. You can explore our projects on this site.

We share what we have learned about developing resilience, provide case studies, and showcase images and what they mean to the people who used them to tell us their story. We provide free resource materials to support you to develop your own projects using the combined power of words and images. You can view videos created within, and about, our projects, and see where, together, we have made a difference. For example, you can find out more about our project The Big Picture here.
