Participation research group 1

The Participation research group examines the nature of participation as both a process and a goal, in all its forms, from participatory practice, participatory research and participatory governance. The group also aims to create space for shared cross disciplinary approaches to participation in policy and practice. 

With expertise ranging across Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures, with research academics from the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and the School of Media and Communications. The group focuses specifically on work that involves the non-arts audiences, working in applied settings or using participatory approaches for social change.
