Arts-based Approaches to Research with Marginalised Communities
January 12th, 2024
9:30 a.m. - 12:20 p.m. (EST)
Dr. Victoria Foster
Senior External Engagement Fellow and Director of the Centre for Social Responsibility, Edge Hill University
In this workshop, Dr. Foster will introduce participants to arts-based research with marginalised communities. She will discuss epistemological and methodological issues that underpin novel research methods such as poetry, visual art and photovoice. Such methods can raise a range of ethical concerns which will be considered. Plentiful examples will be given of how these methods can engage communities in producing knowledge about themselves. The workshop will include creative exercises for participants to take part in to give them a flavour of the potential of this way of working.
Note: for the purposes of the KiND/SPSA Professional Development Certificate, this workshop is cross-listed under both the Professionalization and the Research Methods categories of workshops.
