Day 1. 24.8.21- Creative Decolonised Methodologies and Impact

Day 2. 25.8.21 – Glocal Community Methodologies and Impact

Day 3. 26.8.21- Public Engagement and Online Impact

Some feedback from attendees:

“The event was very informative, helpful and interesting. I am beginning an MSc in September and found this very useful in helping to alleviate my nervousness about starting my MSc”

“It was a joy to sit in such a run well conference. I really enjoyed the spirit and valued the knowledge and skills of the facilitators/presenters”

“The last few days have been transformative. I appreciate the organisers for your work. The speakers were fantastic varied and so generous”

“These past 3 days has confirmed how powerful and needed these spaces are. The concept of decolonising research methods in spaces which have (in the main) emerged from colonised, violent and oppressive experiences, is what some would call brave!”
