Potted input on the genesis of this multi-phase action research, ground-truthing, sharing and exchanging knowledge, discussing ideas on co-producing and disseminating knowledge.
Input on a visual model and ideas for a co-produced Guide on Denial rooted in our realities.
Bringing ideas together to begin ‘theorising our realities’ (a less formal way of doing ‘grounded theory’) by
(i) bringing manifestations of denial we are aware of together
(ii) seeing micro-macro links, patterns and themes,
(iii) adopting or adapting an outline model for understanding.
Post Workshop Follow up:
I would like to start small, so I am limiting this topic of Denial to the first and this overflow workshop (maximum 30 people).
The aim is to meet again, at an agreed time, with those who want to co-analyse the emerging collective story from the initial individual stories, and to start writing towards a final product, the form of which we are not yet sure about, but definitely something that is open and accessible.
This will also be an informal way of imparting and learning qualitative research skills and affirming other ways of knowing. as well as accepted practice that liberate silent and silenced voices.
