Long lasting impact
Aardschap is an action research group using methods from art and science to develop communities of practice, and piece together what makes places thrive. Aardschap projects each begin with experiments where we work together with local communities in a process of "learning by doing" we call action research. This process enables us to understand places and groups of people in depth, so that the actions we then take together have the potential for long-lasting impact.
Informed by our artistic and academic backgrounds and experience with social interventions, we are able to develop new narratives which gives a fresh perspective on a communities habitat. This is the engine to strengthen social capital even in challenging contexts.
