There are two ways to get involved in Communities 2020. You can do either or both.
One or more members of your group could participate in an interview about your experience of being involved in community organisation during the pandemic. The interview will be informal and offer an opportunity for you to talk about your group in your own words. I would like to interview both group organisers (e.g. people doing the background work to make things happen) and group participants (e.g. people who take part in the activities or use the services the group organises).
I am now particularly seeking the following types of organisation for interviews:
- Organisations run by and for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people
- Small groups run entirely by volunteers
Your group could contribute by recording one or more of your video-meetings. Part of the study is understanding how groups are communicating and working together during this time, so if you are holding meetings on Zoom, Skype or similar, this is an easy and extremely valuable way to participate. I am seeking volunteer-led groups who would be willing to record one or more meeting(s).
Please get in touch to find out more.
