Abstract

This paper was initially given in presentation form. It is a narrative account of Collective Encounters’ emergent practice in the field of popular education using embodied creative methodologies. It examines the development of the ‘Radical Makers’ training programme, which is geographically located in the North West of England, and places it in the context of a discriminatory Arts and Culture Sector. The practice of embodied popular education is not common in the UK, and this paper examines how Collective Encounters link it to their theory of social change. Finally, it addresses what has been learned in the course of delivering the programme. The paper incorporates topics that were discussed in the questions that followed the presentation in order to present a full picture of the proceedings.
