Workshop “Participatory and Arts-based Research Approaches: the engaging tactics of collecting and communicating ethnographic data”. Training Concept Development. 20-21 June, 2014
This time we focused on the creative approaches in collecting the empirical data and the question, how the collected data can be organised and communicated creatively. The partners brought leaflets, videos, pictures and other materials, which illustrate, how the empirical data can be accumulated and communicated in an attractive, playful way, seeking to encourage further participation of citizens groups. Also partners reviewed and discussed ongoing local projects and developed a plan for further project actions. The Lithuanian partner, Laimikis.lt, brought the guests to the wooden neighbourhood of Snipiskes (Šnipiškės, lithuanian), where a local project is developed. By implementing creative formats for non-formal education, the residents are encouraged to share the stories and documents on the history of the neighbourhood.
