EMPOWERING MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES WITH A TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING APPROACH
Empowering the P3 community (beggars, buskers and scavengers) in the Performing arts Studio with a transformative learning approach is expected to change the mindset through programs in the performing arts studio that can change the P3 community (beggars, buskers and scavengers) so that they are more empowered because empowerment has the goal of giving power to disadvantaged people. Furthermore, this study aims to compile an overview of the implementation of transformative learning to empower the P3 community (beggars, buskers and scavengers). This study uses a qualitative approach with a type of phenomenology to reveal the facts behind the social facts that exist in society. The technique used to determine informants is the Snowball Sampling Technique. The research subjects were Performing arts Studio Managers, P3 Communities, Kasi and Social Service Staff of Bondowoso Regency. Data collection is done through in-depth interviews, observation, and documentation. Checking the validity of the data includes extending observations, increasing persistence, triangulating sources and techniques, and peer-checking through discussion. Interactive model data analysis from Miles and Huberman is data collection, data reduction, data display, and data verification.
