Free Workshops in Orange County Focus on Health Equity and Community Research!

Free Workshops in Orange County Focus on Health Equity and Community Research!

Healthy City's Community Research Lab (CRL) shares best practices and methods for community-based organizations interested in supporting their strategies with research that combines community knowledge and HealthyCity.org technology. 

Working with residents in Santa Ana, the Alliance for California Traditional Arts recorded, highlighted, and mapped "Cultural Treasures" including individuals, organizations, places, and events. Through these maps they were able to share community knowledge, locate resources, and provide photos, videos, and other details in English and Spanish about these assets.

If you are interested in working with others in your community to research an issue, visualize your community’s story, and share your maps and research, join us in Orange County on February 24th – 26th as we host three days of free workshops!

The workshops run from 10 am – 4pm, and the topics will include:

Day 1: Community Assets on a Map: Facilitating a Community-Engaged Mapping Session
Day 2: Visualizing Your Community: Creating Maps that Tell Your Community's Story
Day 3: Hyperlocal Communications: Sharing Your Maps and Research

Apply to join us for one or all days! Space is limited and priority is given to organizations in Orange County working on behalf of community-based organizations on specific projects.

If you are interested in attending, you can apply online today. Applications are due by February 20th.

Through generous support from the California Wellness Foundation, we are able to provide our CRL Workshop series throughout California! In these workshops, we provide step-by-step guidance on topics that cover how to develop research questions, how to create effective community maps, how to facilitate participatory mapping, and how to share maps and data with community members. If you can't make it to this workshop, be on the lookout for one in your area!

We'd also like to thank our planning partners for this upcoming workshop, the Orange County Labor Federation and the University of California Irvine's Community and Labor Project.
