In conversation: The Context of Being a Co-researcher

programme_c_2

A central focus for Tate Encounters has been the engagement of volunteer participants in museum practices. This has involved: the viewing of exhibitions, participation in museum events, as well as visits ‘behind the scenes’. As a result of this activity, films and other visual media works have been made collaboratively with different members of the Tate Encounters Research team. Volunteer participants who generated visual media works became more fully involved in the research process and have been called ‘co-researchers’.
This session brings a group of the Tate Encounters co-researchers together with researcher Sarah Thomas, who worked closely with several of them to produce ethnographic films tracing their life-world experience. They will be joined by Dr David Dibosa and Dr Raimi Gbadamoshi.
