About: Time and resource poor. Often working with marginalised groups. Locally based. There are lots of similarities between anthropology and charitable organisations. This webinar aims to bring anthropologists, charities and civil society organisations together to explore how they can work more effectively and collaboratively. From funding proposals to communicating research and advocacy work to designing interventions, practical insights and solutions will be provided. It will also provide an opportunity to explore how anthropologists can effectively work with charities, co-designing research and interventions. We will also explore the challenges anthropologists face in communicating their research. What support is needed and how networks can be developed. What is the role of the RAI in showcasing the work of anthropologists? How can we further encourage and assist public engagement?
