Collection Twenty Seven — Colonising Research

This collection invited contributors to share when was the last time they felt listened to and what they though that would look like in a research context.

Colonising Research is part of the Community Series and was a workshop that took place at the 'Connections in Action — Design for Health Symposium 2022'.

Contributors responded to the prompt "When was the last time you felt listened to, and what do you think that would look like in a research context?"
