Sharing Space – THE AHA CENTRE <– Click here for more information
There are many amazing community-based research studies being conducted by or with Indigenous Peoples across our lands. It can be challenging for research teams to figure out wise practices for conducting research at the best of times. This is even more so during a pandemic where keeping distant is the best way to care for one another. Many researchers find themselves and their teams at different stages of their research wondering things like: how do we do participatory analysis when we can’t bring everyone together? OR: How can I still create a safe and welcoming environment for my interview when I can’t be in the same room as the person I’m talking with?
Staff at the AHA Centre and The Pacific AIDS Network/REACH have been wondering these things too, so we thought: why not create space for members of our research communities to come together to learn from and support one another as we struggle with this new reality. And so, we are extending an open invitation to join us for the Sharing Space Community of Practice Virtual Gatherings. This opportunity is opento anyone trying to sort out how to do research in a good way, given our ‘new—COVID—reality’. We can brainstorm together, or simply build a supportive environment at a time when many of us have no idea what to do.
