This year we are running courses, online workshops, traineeships and boot camps to shift power in social impact work and ensure more people from underrepresented groups are in the room, at the table and designing solutions.
📢First up is a workshop on critical participatory action research (CPAR) on the 31st of March, 14:00 GMT.
📢CPAR is a fantastic way for practitioners to hone in on community engagement and ownership, putting in place participatory data collection and analysis, and tools for measuring social impact, examining different power dynamics, and coming to project design with anti-racism, and social justice and equity-centred principles at the centre of your work.
📢 CPAR approach doesn't shy away from discussing historic and structural inequities and their current implications. Instead, it work with people to centre assets-based, trauma and culturally-informed approaches honouring peoples' knowledge and lived experience.
This introductory workshop is for you if:
👌You work in the social impact space; you may be a practitioner and academic or PhD student looking at ways to meaningfully co-design projects or research with people.
👌You want to learn more about creating inclusive, equity-based, solidarity-focused approaches to working with people.
👌 You'd like some direction and recommendations for critical resources that you can contextualise for your work.
👌You want to connect with others in this area, share ideas and learn.
The introductory workshop will be practical and interactive. We'll start by looking at CPAR and its origins in social activism before exploring how you can apply CPAR to your research, projects and policy development approaches.
🎉Subsidised and free spots are available, and do get in touch at email@example.com if you want to chat about any adjustment/provision related to disability - we need you all in the room 🙂
