This CCIG forum (co-developed and hosted by the Families, Relationships and Communities and Enactments Research Programmes), held the 30 of March, 2014 asked the following question: what is the relationship between acts, performance and social science methods?

The forum provided a valuable practical opportunity for researchers, interested in both using creative research to engage participants and also in developing methods which can dynamically work with people’s own, often political, actions.

The forum brought together researchers at the forefront of political and creative research strategies that engage and work with participants. The forum built on CCIG Enacting Methods forum last December where we explored ‘the social and political life of data’.
