Deliverables

We are committed to reaching out and working with the community in their own spaces. Social movements produce their own unique knowledge. Our project sought to establish a flow of knowledge between scholars and community organizations. Our deliverables included several presentations and/or collaborations with community organizations such as Powered By Data, the Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies and the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies among others. Moreover, the database and website will, we hope, be valuable community resources. Non-governmental organizations can use the site to learn about funding opportunities; draw inspiration from other NGOs’ projects; enhance institutional memory; and share knowledge. The media can also use the site as a resource for background research.

Our team has published articles (with several more forthcoming) and a special edition of a journal, presented numerous conference papers and keynote lectures, and organized several conference sessions (including a themed session at ISA). In addition to the website (statefunding.ca), the primary deliverables – the public database and archive – are almost complete. We have also provided at least six graduate students with multi-year funding and offered training to over a dozen undergraduate and graduate research assistants. Many of these students also received funding to present their work at conferences. To produce the database, we formed partnerships with libraries, Internet Archive (archive.org) and the University of Alberta’s Kule Institute and Arts Resource Centre. And our experiments with new technologies (as well as access to information laws) have produced innovative strategies for collecting data that other scholars can apply in the future.
