Engaging the Arts, Humanities and Design in Action Research and the Helping Professions
David P. Moxley, Holly Feen Calligan and Olivia G. M. Washington
ALARA Inc Monograph Series No 4
By using content from two action research projects, the authors offer an original theory of developmental action research incorporating the benefits of the arts, humanities and design. Through identification of a problem or need for change, imagination of potential solutions, and mobilization of next steps, parallel methods in artistic and design processes and action research can converge to facilitate reflexivity and praxis as products of purposeful action to engage in social betterment in partnership with people who experience marginalization.
