ESRC PASAR project Connecting Communities

ESRC Participatory Arts and Social Action Research (PASAR) Project

This project on research methods addresses the UK social science community's need to gain a better understanding of how participatory action research approaches and engages marginalised groups in research as co-producers of knowledge. It combines walking methods and participatory theatre to create a space for exploring, sharing and documenting processes of belonging and place-making that are crucial to understanding and enacting citizenship. Participatory Action Research, based on the principles of inclusion, valuing all voices and action-oriented interventions allows for engaging marginalized groups into research as a citizenship practice.
