Community-engaged research in times of crisis, a visual symposium – TRU Newsroom
Join SFU Community-Engaged Research Initiative (CERi) for this free, online symposium on March 26 from 9 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.
Field Stories: Community-engaged research in times of crisis is a day-long virtual symposium that explores a range of community-engaged research practices, stories and assemblies about current social, health crisis and change.
We are living through one of the most disruptive and transformative eras in living memory, a period when multiple health, environmental, social, political and economic crises are threatening the very bonds of social life. This is challenging our ability to care for each other and imagine a common future. In this moment, community-engaged research is often at the very heart of efforts to coordinate meaningful and affective forms of care, understanding and action that answer to current crises and offer hope for the future.
The CER in Times of Crisis symposium explores how community-engaged research fosters playful exploration, supports policy action and system change, and offers radical hope for the time ahead. We welcome community members, students, university- and community-based researchers and others interested in the reach and potential of community-engaged research for our times.
