Activist research: workshop on collective research for social change

Where: Seomra Spraoi


When: 14th of July, 3pm-6pm

How: register by emailing mickbyrne@gmail.com

What:
Effective activism or political organisation requires an understanding of the world around us and the kinds of issues and struggles we want to intervene in. But everyday life, government policies or forms of power that go on around these issues are usually complex, even contradictory. We can’t understand them based on inherited ideologies, so how can we understand them?

Activist research is a way of doing just that. Forget your prejudices about academic research –  this is about using research to engage with and change the world. This workshop provides some tools, some ideas and some activities to learn about how activist research works and how we might use it.
