Sophia and an Open University colleague will talk about the strategic partnership between The Glass-House and the Design Group at The Open University, which has seen us work together on a range of action research projects, workshops and events, developing practical support and working with communities across the UK. We’ll reflect on what has made the partnership so successful, and what we see as the conditions for successful partnerships between academia, practice and community-based groups and organisations.
