Productive Margins Project Launches Website


full-logo-finalAfter a 6 month labour of love we are launching our new more interactive, reflective and user friendly website! Here you will find multidisciplinary projects’ outputs, reflections on co-production and a range of resources.
We wanted a website that, besides communicating research news and outputs, would enable us to share our experience of the dilemmas and achievements of using a co-productive multidisciplinary methodology. We now have a page dedicated entirely to co-production which includes reports of our Forums, which are neither a conventional advisory board, nor a familiar model of ‘partnership’ dominated by powerful actors. Rather they are a site of experimentation aimed at openings new ways of knowing. There is also a page dedicated to our data management dilemmas. In our experience current data sharing, open-access and ethical governances do not always work for co-produced research.
In the projects and outputs pages you will find links to multi-method and multi-disciplinary outputs: pictures stories from young people in Wales,  videos of high profile Muslim women reflecting on their experiences of engagement, an interactive fridge used to conduct food surveys in Knowle West; and a fictional novel developed by peer researchers with artists and researchers to co-write welfare utopias. And the list goes on and it will keep on going for some while.
We have interactive buttons for you to tell us what you think by e-mail or send us replies to our blogs. We are also interested in finding out about your blogs on these issues. Follow us on Twitter @ProductiveMgns and Like us on Facebook: Productive Margins.
