Location: Pop Up Space
My study explores the link between wellbeing on a personal level and living offgrid, or in an alternative mode of living eg vans,boats,caravans,yurts,etc. I’m hoping to gain some valuable insights from folks at the festival who are living offgrid to contribute to what I’ve learnt so far through discussion at my stall. More information about the project will be available at my stall, and if you’re interested in taking part in academic research, I will be available to interview over the course of the festival and questionnaires will be available to complete at the stall.
Hi, I’m Demi. I am a Master of Arts student in Sociocultural Anthropology (Durham University), with a BA in Sociology obtained from the University of Gloucestershire. For my current dissertation project I am exploring the benefits and challenges of living offgrid on a micro level from a holistic perspective. This links wellbeing and resilience in offgrid anthropology. How is your own personal wellbeing influenced by living offgrid? What challenges do you have to deal with?
