“Bristol Living Lab: Diversity & Inclusion” at Digital Living Lab Days 2020

Digital Living Lab Days 2020 https://openlivinglabdays.com/, run by the Europan Network for Living Labs (ENoLL), took place from 2-4 September 2020.  The conference was attended by 334 participants from 29 countries. KWMC won the ‘Public Voting Award for Best Research Submission’ for a practitioner presentation (video) called ‘Bristol Living Lab: Diversity & Inclusion’. The talk focused on the importance of increasing diversity within ENoLL and how Living Labs can develop more inclusive practices. We shared the work being developing through ParCos to create Principles for Diversity and Inclusion to guide the three citizen science case studies. This included practical examples and lessons learnt of how KWMC are working to address diversity and inclusion through Bristol Living Lab. Please see the video below.

Guidebook published, on the use of arts-based methods in science communication

The pop-up guidebook opens a door to use arts-based methods in various stages of participatory processes of making sense of data. This is based on an ideology of making science participation a mainstream activity; one that is a part of popular and cultural activities, one that people want to – and more critically are able – to participate in. It is an iterative co-creation process.
