Peña creative engagement workshop, August 2019.
WHAT: This workshop drew on learning from Peña,
an engagement project supported by the Scottish
Government’s Social Innovation Fund. Peña used
a variety of creative approaches including, use of food,
visual arts and creative role play to engage Roma women
living in Glasgow. Original project was in partnership with
Soul Sisters Food.
WHEN AND WHERE: 28th August 2019 at Glasgow
Caledonian University.WHY:These approaches promoted meaningful and
sustained engagement with research participants who
spoke diferent languages and are useful to share with
a wider audience so CPE helped organise the event.
WHO: GCU Social Work Lecturer Dr Heather Lynch and
PhD Student Skye Loneragan supported by Susan Grant
and two student mentors.
OUTPUTS:Workshop with ice breaker interactive
activity, presentation about Peña, poetry, biscuit
making and question and answer. 15 researchers and
engagement professionals from universities or charities
attended the workshop.CPE also contributed to an interactive table top session
about the Peña project around language barriers and
creative methods in participatory engagement at the
NCCPE Engage Conference 2019 in Bristol in December.
The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Disruption’.
OUTCOMES:Participants at both of these sessions had
the opportunity to learn through participation in Pena’s
engagement approaches and explore how these and other
approaches may be relevant for their engagement work.
