Participatory Research Innovation and Learning Lab

Are you doing participatory research or planning to do so? Interested in learning about innovative ideas for participatory research?

About this event

The Participatory Research Innovation and Learning Lab (PRILL) is a series of workshops for Durham University researchers (including doctoral students) and members of community, voluntary and other organisations. Here we will learn from and inspire each other, and work together on innovative ideas to tackle ethical, practical and methodological challenges arising from doing participatory research in all disciplines.

Coordinated by Durham University‚Äôs Centre for Social Justice and Community Action (CSJCA).


Innovation Labs are workshops designed to engage with people with experience of participatory research, from both Durham University and partner organisations, to explore ethical, methodological and practical challenges and innovative ideas from existing/developing participatory research projects and experiment with new ideas within the Lab. Toolkits mapped on the challenges identified will be co-produced in the labs, coordinated by Sui Ting Kong and colleagues.


Facilitators at each workshop will comprise a small team from the Centre, including Durham researchers Sarah Banks, Sui Ting Kong, Andrew Orton and Andrew Russell, and community facilitators Yvonne Hall, Gaynor Trueman and Sue Shaw, alongside postgraduate researchers.


NOTE1: These workshops are for members of community, voluntary and other organisations interested in participatory research and Durham University staff and postgraduate researchers only. Members of other Universities are not eligible to attend. We will be organising open events in the future, please check our website or request to be put on our mailing list.


NOTE2: Please note that we will seek participants' permission to record the events so we can collate information about how to improve support for participatory research and collect examples of good practice.
