Action Research Workshop, with Christopher Robbins

Action Research Workshop, with Christopher Robbins

Workshop @ Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, July 7, 6 – 9 pm

Christopher Robbins will explore some of the techniques he has encountered creating action- and collaboration- based works over the past ten years.

This workshop will focus on PRA techniques—also known as Participatory Rapid Appraisal / Participatory Learning & Action / Action Research—ways of exploring a community from the varied perspectives of the people in that community, without having to rely on the “Official” perspectives put forth by those who already have a voice.

Techniques we will cover include community mapping, transect walks, and other techniques for getting a foothold in new communities. Bring a digital camera if you got one.

This workshop is first in a series of community action workshops organized by WPA 2010 bringing back a citizen-driven WPA, including action research with the Ushahidi open source digital platform, silkscreening and stenciling, and guerilla public works.
