Picture Justice Australia is a pilot research study that aims to creatively engage young people in impactful civic participation in their local community. In this presentation, we explain the research aims, the Picture Justice Australia pedagogical model that informed the pilot workshop program, and in particular, focus on how the collaboration of Design Thinking with Civics and Citizenship education supported the participants to develop and utilise empathy, uniting political knowledge with problem-solving skills to encourage what we have called critical creativity. We will also unpack some of the literature related to creative citizenship, before concluding with our preliminary research findings.
