The contention at the core of this workshop is that promoting ground-up approaches to policy where the knowledge work of devising an evidence base is not separate from policy work, requires expansions of our view – away from both a narrow natural focus, and a partial social focus. We propose that a way to begin that work is offered by undertaking either reflective or ethnographic writing. Nurturing our capacities for careful narrative writing is increasingly being recognised as crucial in generative ground-up policy engagement.
This workshop is set to run for four months with an intensive during the last week of August which will offer opportunity for reading and talking. In addition the workshop will offer support for personal writing development before, during, and after the intensive.
