Event: Research for Action anniversary
March 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us to celebrate one year of Research for Action.
How can research support grassroots movements? Can research be a tool for action? How can we avoid replicating oppressive structures such as class in our research work?
The co-operative Research for Action was set up a year ago to support campaigning for social, environmental and economic justice. This far, we have been focusing mainly on local authority finance and democracy. For this event, we want to bring together researchers, journalists and activists to discuss the relationship between research and action – and to celebrate our first anniversary!
The event will start with a panel discussion, followed by interventions from the audience. Afterwards there will be music and refreshments. Please join us!
