CCARPH aims to transcend disciplinary and academic boundaries, working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically addressing sustainable cities and communities and climate action by tackling issues of awareness, development, training of community members and archiving local knowledge on risks and resilience. The inclusion of a wide range of scholarly expertise extends CCARPH beyond the disciplinary boundaries of environment and climate studies, disaster risk management, and beyond the edges of academia by co-producing knowledge with community partners.
Art-based community engagement encourages knowledge co-production that draws from the everyday experiences of community members and their creative abilities to achieve individual and collective goals.
Community-based Arts as a Vehicle for Social Change
Risk to Resilience: Community-based Art as a Vehicle for Building Resilience and Sustainability is a transdisciplinary action research proposal that aims to:
- To develop a community-based definition and articulation of what community risk, governance, and sustainability are
- To collectively create a community-based arts plan for climate and disaster action for resilient and sustainable communities
This project aims to produce a participant-made, community-based arts plan for climate and disaster action towards a more resilient and sustainable Disiplina Village.This plan taps into the artistic inclinations of community members and encourages them to recognize their capabilities. It also encourages civic action by making space for them to dialogue about their shared reality and collectively imagine and work towards positive social change.
Baon sa Pagbangon: Preparations for Adaptive Resilience
Baon sa Pagbangon is inspired by Cultural Animation, a participatory, “art-based research methodology that utilises theatre techniques”, community members are invited to participate in a series of games and guided creative pursuits that will draw from risk-related experiences. (Kelemen, 2018)
Understanding how communities perceive crisis and crisis management, and how they access and experience basic services and support during such times is crucial in developing a robust evidence base that informs effective disaster risk management and mitigation programs. This project recognizes that community members carry with them a wealth of experiences and information regarding risk management and that we are learning from their lived realities.
