Regular events are held - usually in partnership with other organisations - to bring together practitioners and researchers interested in participative approaches to working with communities. CUSP events are an opportunity to get together with others who are interested in using participatory research approaches to tackle community issues. The emphasis is on sharing practices, ideas and concerns. People who have come along to CUSP events have described them as 'inspiring' and 'encouraging'. As well as the chance to meet people with similar interests, each event will provide insights from an example of current practice in collaborative enquiry in a community setting.
