Participatory Action Research (PAR) will be one of the main methodologies we will be exploring together as a group. For this reason, it's great to know how familiar people are with it. Having previous experience with PAR is not a requirement.

Code of Conduct: RecrearMagnify is neither a summer school nor a vacation. The program will be a lot of fun and will require your full participation. Notice that sharing space with a bunch of people from all over can be quite a challenge. We cherish diversity. At Recrear, people of very different backgrounds and lifestyles share the same space, and we think that is great. This is an adventure for us all: be flexible, stay focused and have fun.

You are looking for a community to practice your growth…

We are too.

THE PRINCIPLES

Of Magnify

Inside out

We create intentional space for self-exploration– from this place of self inquiry we invite more genuine connections with others. We overcome boundaries of nationality, race, religion and small-talk through group processes aimed at discovering that boundaries between people are fictional.

Knowledge generation

We embark on this collective exploration process inspired by the principles of Participatory Action Research. For those wanting to deepen learning and creative research practices in their work, there is no better way to learn than experiencing it first hand. Through action research we’ll discover how community experiences are co-created.

Heart to heart / face to face

Face-to-face encounters remain central to collective discovery. We don’t just ‘live under the same roof’, we create a lab for intercultural connection and self-exploration. By the end of our collective exploration, we’ll have created the foundation to make long-term collaboration possible.
