How to use Research to change the world

BSWN is delighted to be working with the Runnymede Trust to bring the third seminar of the Common Cause Cardiff Network to Bristol to encourage input from Bristol-based BAME leaders. This seminar will be slightly longer than usual (5 hours), and will focus on how to centre research methods as a way of deepening your expertise and the vision you have for changing the world.

The session will offer two parts:

Javier Sanchez - participatory methods, action research, qualitative methods and the philosophy of knowledge, action and reflection.

Laurie Mompelat - using demographic information, finding and using online sources of quantitative data.

BME leaders and BME-led civic and arts groups are always under intense pressure to deliver results with their work, often under-funded and under-resourced. Although embracing the use of research methods will not solve funding issues, it is an opportunity to stand back from this pressure and engage with your work at a much deeper level: What do I know? What is it that I want to change? Who will I really help? How much better can I do? This seminar argues that research is the difference between short-term outputs and long term vision. Join us for a challenging, but lively session which will encourge you to look at the bigger picture.
