Travel and accommodation

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des BildesThe Action Research Summer Camp 2020 will use the facilities of the Waldhüttl Mentlberg, an ancient farmhouse, only a 15-minutes drive away from the historical center and main station of Innsbruck. The barn, the teepee and the garden will serve as our major event spaces.

Workshop participants can make themselves a primitive sleeping place in the barn or in the huge teepee, or set up a tent in the surroundings. Please bring along your own mattress and sleeping bag.

Those seeking more comfort will find accommodation in the nearby beautiful center of Innsbruck, down the hill, e.g. in a pension or hotel. If needed, we can assist you to find a place for you to stay.



We will offer a range of introductory texts that will allow us to get to know some bases of participatory action research and community development. Participants are asked to read some basic compulsory texts and prepare some preliminary thoughts, questions, journal entries, etc. to begin early conversations once we arrive in Innsbruck.

Participants will select a small key passage from the compulsory literature, connecting it to their own previous experience or goals for future work.
