EthnoBorrel, a networking group for professional ethnographers, will be launched on Thursday, 7 December, 2017. The launch will take place in the Netherlands during the group’s first meetup.
An initiative of Erin Taylor and Gawain Lynch of Canela Consulting, EthnoBorrel aims to strengthen members’ professional skills and advance the practice and value of ethnography in Europe.
EthnoBorrels will be held monthly in locations in the Netherlands and other locations in Europe. Each event will focus on a theme relevant to the professional practices of its members. Attendees can present their work, seek advice from peers, discover opportunities, advance their
skills, and link up with broader global networks.
EthnoBorrel’s membership is open to ethnographers working in any professional role, including designers, researchers, managers, marketing professionals, and more. Members may work in companies, consultancies, design agencies, research institutes, think tanks, market research
companies, NGOs, or government agencies, to name a few.
EthnoBorrel works in cooperation with Anthrodesign, Ethnography Matters, and the
Ethnographic Praxis in Industry Community (EPIC).
The name “EthnoBorrel” takes its inspiration from two sources: the ethnobreakfasts run by
professional ethnographers in the U.S., and the Dutch concept of the “borrel,” an after-work
get-together featuring drinks and Dutch snacks, often by invitation and centred upon a theme.
Ethnographers who are interested in attending or hosting the event can contact Erin (details
