The PGR Creative Methods Group would like to invite you to join us for another vibrant symposium on creative research methods on Tue 7th March 14:00-15:30 on Microsoft Teams. This session features:

  • Manjot Kaur Dhaliwal, University of Sussex – ‘Poetry and Participatory Action Research’

This talk will look at how poetry can used as a research method within the social sciences, specifically how poetry can be used to positively impact the wellbeing of participants, produce non-extractive knowledge and enrich our sociological imaginations.  This talk is based on Manjot’s current PhD project on British South Asian women’s identities and family histories.

  • Gabriel Hoosain Khan, Independent – ‘Reimagining wellbeing: Using arts-based methods to address sexual, gender and health inequalities’  

Gabriel will discuss the Creative Change Laboratory, an immersive learning space in which young South Africans could develop unconventional solutions to problems in their communities. Drawing on artworks produced during the project, facilitator/collaborator reflections, and audio and visual recordings made during the process, this interactive presentation explores the opportunities and limitations of using long-term art-activism interventions in contexts on sexual and gender-based violence and inequalities. For further details see: this project and this paper.

The group is supported by the Centre for Arts and Wellbeing. It is open to all who share our passion for creative methods and our desire to provide a supportive, stimulating space within which to explore these. No advance sign-up is required; just turn up on the day if you wish to join us.
