02 SES 09 A, Education and Transition: Enabling of Young Unemployed People
We want here to explore the concept of living inquiry that could contribute to contextualise and understand the contributions made by the young people. We have explored the notion of living inquiry as part of our position as researchers and educators (Fendler, 2013; Miño & Sancho; 2014). This notion comes from Merleau-Ponty (1962) who conceived research as an enactive space of living inquiry. In a/r/tography, per example, “living inquiry is an aesthetic encounter, where the process of meaning making and being are inextricably connected to an awareness and understanding of art” (Springgay, Irwin, & Kind, 2005: 902). From this perspective, what the “Show your Own Gold” project is offering to the youth is the opportunity of being engage in a living inquiry experience as “an embodied encounter constituted through visual and textual understandings and experiences rather than mere visual and textual representations” (idem: 902). By taking a living inquiry position we are able to offer youth the possibility of visualizing their biographical experiences and reflecting on new personal and professional alternatives for their vocational trajectories. This means that the process promoting by this project could promote “a disruption of established ways of knowing, through learning events” (Atkinson, 2012: 10).
