WHAT IS THE CURRENT THEME?
Growing the agency of communities and co-creating new knowledge
Participatory research can be a vehicle to collaborate and coordinate with stakeholders in generating empowering information for both scholars and broader communities. Community expertise could be of great value to researchers, and new knowledge can help communities overcome a lack of resources for advocacy, skills for implementation, or access to decision-making settings. Large and small, marginalized and central, communities can benefit from the academic engine — and the academy can benefit from the perspectives of a partner community.
An evening of exploratory dialogue and reflection enabled us to learn from each other, and from participatory research practitioners. You would have discussed which methods worked for you — from citizen science to community-based participatory action research — and learned research approaches for maximum inclusivity and impact.
