Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


This chapter draws on the CREATE framework to explore the REHEAL-C project, supported by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship 2019-2020. It aims to understand British Chinese children’s physical activity, leisure and health-related experiences, which aligns with broader European policy to address health inequalities. On reflection, the CREATE framework resonates with the values and principles that underpinned ethnographic and arts-based methods. The principles of connections, reflexivity, empathy, adherence, transparency and empowerment, demonstrated by the REHEAL-C project, have enabled a more critical and humanistic approach in researching with British Chinese children amid challenges sparked by Covid-19 pandemic and the historical invisibility of British Chinese communities and research locally and globally.
