In May BSUFN will be co-hosting a workshop with the Food Research Collaboration, CIty University London, and People’s Knowledge, Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience, Coventry University. This workshop will explore the use of arts-based methods for research and dialogue on food-related topics.
The arts could be central to a more participatory approach to researching a healthier and more sustainable food system. That is the premise of this wide-ranging workshop, which addresses a need expressed by researchers on food and farming. It will present a diverse range of arts-based approaches to dialogue with communities, and methods for thinking more creatively about how to create change.
Some members of BSUFN have expereince and expertise in using arts and creative methods for research and public engagement activities. These methods include the use of collage, sculpture, installation, photography, film, and sound. Some of BSUFN’s members will co-convene this workshop along with colleagues from People’s Knowledge, a cross-theme group working at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience, Coventry University.
Full details of the workshop are avilable on the Food Research Collaboration website which includes a link for registration for the workshop. The event will be held in London and will be free to attend.
