How are researchers and educators collaborating beyond post-secondary institutions? Contributors to this discussion outline their methodologies, ethics, and practices for community-engaged research and learning.

Nearshore Gatherings is a series of outdoor public events hosted by the Blackwood and led by local artists, researchers, community organizers, knowledge-keepers, and educators of various backgrounds. Through walks, workshops, and discussions, the program engages the intersecting social, political, and ecological worlds that meet at Lake Ontario’s nearshore.
