Resource for London


This workshop addresses the UK social science community’s need to gain a better understanding of how participatory action research (PAR) approaches engage marginalized groups in research as co-producers of knowledge. The workshop combines methodological and practical experience of walking methods, participatory theater methods and how we might combine them. In doing so the workshop creates a space for exploring, sharing and developing research practice in mobile methods and participatory theater. The course aims to develop knowledge, understanding and confidence in employing mobile and participatory research methods and explores their potential benefits for social research.

Presnters include Umut Erel, Erene Kaptani, Maggie O’Neill and Tracey Reynolds who will be covering these topics:

  • Description, delivery and evaluation of participatory arts based methods in social research
  • Hands on experience of using walking methods and participatory theatre
  • Ethical Considerations in working with marginalised groups through PAR
  • Benefits and Challenges of using these methods in  social research

The workshop is being hosted by the University of Southampton and National Centre for research Methods on October 27 in London. Invited are researchers with interest in participatory arts, ethnographic and group work methods, in all levels and disciplines.
