In December 2016, the Children’s Lives Research Initiative hosted the ‘Research With and For Children’ half-day seminar, supported by the Melbourne Social Equity Institute. The seminar attracted a diverse group of academics, community practitioners, non-for profits and higher degree students.
On the basis of this event, it became evident that a network was needed to connect researchers and practitioners across the University of Melbourne and externally to support the practice of research with and for children. This network was established in early 2017.
We welcome anyone with an interest in this area to join our mailing list, to keep up to date with further activities and to facilitate learnings from one another.
