This paper explores the conceptual and methodological framework of the Komuniti Tok Piksa project, which is both, research project and community action initiative. Visual research tools are used within an indigenous research framework in order to study behavioural practices, perceptions and needs in regards to HIV and AIDS in Papua New Guinea. It explores the ways in which visual methods when paired with a community action approach can be used to facilitate social change and to encourage new engagements between researchers and participants.
