Sketching Research

A collaboration between Lynne Chapman, Urban Sketcher, and the Morgan Centre, University of Manchester.

What can an artist and a bunch of sociologists learn from each other’s work? The project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust

Lynne Chapman is an urban sketcher and illustrator who was Artist in Residence at the Morgan Centre during 2015/16. She  documented the life and work of the centre, and worked with us to explore the similarities between sketching and qualitative research in the ways they interpret and represent everyday lives.

Lynne produced her own sketches and worked with Morgan Centre staff who tested the potential of the use of sketching in their own research.
