WPA 2010: Action Research Workshop

Christopher Robbins will explore some of the techniques he has encountered creating action- and collaboration- based works over the past ten years. Techniques we will cover include community mapping, transect walks, and other techniques for getting a foothold in new communities.

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.
