Researchers from the TLANG project and FAHACS will be in Beeston over the February half term holiday to continue the ‘LangScape Curators’ programme. This work is supported by the Educational Engagement Social Sciences Cluster. Over the course of the three-day programme, young people from the IntoUniversity Leeds South centre in Beeston will be learning how to be ethnographic researchers and conducting their own explorations of the local area, using film and interviews. They will then work with artists and creative practitioners to analyse and present their findings. The programme ends with a celebration and open exhibition event at the centre.
You can see the work that the participants from the Leeds East centre produced on our project tumblr: www.langscapecurators.tumblr.com. The team will be keeping the tumblr updated over the course of next week with the new discoveries and findings.
LangScape Curators is research- and practice-led educational and public engagement, leading from methodologies and findings from the TLANG project and from creative practice.
