asking the right questions
Being equipped with the right questions to ask is imperative to truly understand the community you’re working with. Having specific and pointed questions will allow you to spend less time guessing and allow you to read between the lines to appropriately work with community members as a team.
This is where the Community Identity Sheet comes into play.
Review the research you’ve done so far and refer to the Community Identity Sheet for question components.
Each sheet contains a matrix of components which you can combine to create questions which you can either answer based on your research or pose to a group of community members in a workshop setting using the cards provided.
