Workshop Description:  Darlene and Budd will facilitate a two-hour workshop on arts-based research. Arts-based research has proven to be a powerful approach to co-constructing knowledge in community research settings and community-university research partnerships. This workshop will serve as a review for those who are already working with these approaches and as an introduction for others.

The following format has been planned.

  • Welcome
  • Darlene and Budd will share their backgrounds in arts-based research
  • Introductory activity: participants will share the type of work they do and what they know of art-based research / questions they have
  • Brief introduction to arts-based research
  • Experiencing arts-based methods: (1) A poetry making “I am” exercise (Budd)

(2) Metissage – a weaving of stories (Darlene)

  • Debriefing of the activities
  • Closing remarks
