Field Studies

Field Studies

The ASC! field studies use a variety of research methods including critical and performance ethnography, discourse analysis of program materials, and semi-structured interviews with Art for Social Change (ASC) practitioners, educators, participants and researchers, as well as analysis of research-creation processes. Using a phenomenological, arts-based, collaborative approach, the field studies provide researchers with valuable insights and sources of data while also adapting research methodology from other disciplines. The field studies are analysed through the lenses of teaching and learning in the field, evaluation/impact assessment and capacity building for partnerships.
