The Alliance for Praxis Research (APR) is a collective of young researchers and artists creating spaces and encounters for social change and expansion of knowledge.

We work collectively, independently and freely. 

Praxis guides our practice and creative thinking. In the academic context, praxis refers to the practical application of theoretical concepts or ideas. It involves testing and applying theories in real-world situations, often with the goal of bringing about social change or making improvements in a particular field.


Praxis can also refer to the process of reflecting on one's experiences and using that reflection to inform one's actions and decisions. In this sense, praxis is a critical component of experiential learning and can help individuals develop skills and knowledge that they can use to solve problems and effect change in their communities.
