Arts-Based Methods

Understanding urban resilience through arts-based experimentation in the global South: Manila, Nairobi and Cape Town.

This briefing note explores how arts-based methods offer alternative methods to reveal contesting understandings and priorities revolving around resilience. It starts by giving a brief overview of the socio-technical entanglements around resilience thinking – demonstrating how competing logics and perspectives may result in different actors struggling to find common ground. It then introduces the potential for arts-based methods to create spaces for conversation where previously there was mistrust. Finally, it offers some recommendations on how to align different actors and knowledges for more coherent policy actions.
