You're a master's student? You teach master's students? Then this is the event for you. 

A 1/2 day mini-conference, celebrating our wonderful Class of 21-22. You will hear from master's students from across UCL who decided to do something different with their dissertation and worked in partnership, collaborating, with a voluntary & community sector organisation. Or a non-profit for want of a better word.

Hear directly from them what they've learned through the process of cross-sector collaboration - good, the bad, and the ugly! 

Hear also from our Community Partners - what it means to them to be part of the research decision-making and shaping the product at the end. Our students work aims to be both useful and useable beyond the dissertation or indeed UCL!

At the bottom of all this lies our deep belief in inclusive research practices, knowledge democracy, and power sharing.

Knowledge isn't power. Sharing it is. Jean Claude Pinto

Inspired by what you see? The Community Research Initiative is waiting to hear from the Class of 22-23 so that you achieve the best dissertation experience possible. We do this through skills development, events, 1:1 support, and helping you network with super interesting non-profits.

If there is anything we can reasonably do to ensure you get the most out of this event, please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

Family friendly

Please don't juggle childcare to make our event - why not come along as a family? It is a very informal event and plenty of space for you to dip in and out, depending on your companion's attention span! There'll be scrap paper and crayons aplenty to keep little hands at least slightly occupied.  

Please let Anne know ahead of time.
