Action Research Workshop with Christopher Robbins, WPA 2010

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.
