Waste Stories is a project that uses the affective power of fiction to explore and potentially change people’s relationships with waste and the resources that end up in the waste stream. It provides a space for playful re-thinkings of waste through encounters of objects and materials that had entered our waste streams.
This participatory workshop will introduce some of the methods used in Waste Stories and its daughter project, Future Archaeologies of Marine Litter. It is an opportunity to think differently about waste and also to think differently about method and data in socially and environmentally engaged research. Come and join us for a Waste Stories workshop and find out from experience how it works.
This event is brought to you by the CoSS Sustainability IRT and CR&DALL. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
The Waste Stories project is funded by Leverhulme Trust.
