AR+ was founded in 2008 by Hilary Bradbury using seed capital provided by royalties for the Handbooks of Action Research. We started out as a grantmaker to those doing change work. In 2010 the Action Research journal needed a webspace for its blog. AR+ provided that…and since then it’s been another channel for making ARJ available as part of our larger mission to share action research resources.
Since 2016 AR+ has expanded with institutionally supported co-stewards, to offer curated resources and community of practice/inquiry.
Our aim is to make global knowledge democracy more available by supporting inter/transdisciplinary dialogue and connectivity for those practicing at the developmental edge of action research worldwide.
We hope especially that more people may benefit from practicing Action-oriented Research for Transformation at this time of social-ecological challenge. At AR+ we believe that learning and development, including our own, provides a key opportunity for co-creating the world we want and need at this time. We believe we can accomplish more together than we can alone, especially if we practice with mutually transforming power.
Wherever you are on your ART journey, we invite you to join in!
