Action Research Team
Innovative research, creative transformation, and leadership.
The Action Research Team (ART) is one of two Youth Leadership pathways at Deep, alongside the Slam Team. The cohort is made up of youth between the ages of 14-21 who grew up in Chatham County, and are passionate about social justice and transformative work. They take to the streets as organizers, researchers, artivists, and creative writers to identify, understand, and respond to the policies and systems harming their communities.
At the ART’s core is participatory action research, a grassroots approach to research and community engagement which enables youth to unpack Savannah’s past and present, speak out on critical issues affecting their families, friends, and neighborhoods, and ultimately transform Savannah.
In addition to working locally, ART members travel across the country, sharing with, learning from, and strategizing for change with peers and leaders in like communities nationwide.
