Step 1: Map

Map who is in your target community and what they are doing already

Explore area dynamics of people, activities, processes and relationships

Get to know the dynamics of the area chosen for a project. Anthropologists, ethnographers, artists and community development workers have considerable expertise in getting to know people just by talking and ‘hanging out’. This is an invaluable way of getting around the ‘usual suspects’ who can act as gatekeepers to a community.

 

ASK: How much do you already know about your target community?
