We were invited by Ashley McCormick Projects and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to run a creative consultation session with students at Colegrave Primary School around their involvement with FINDING NORTH – a public art project around the legacy of the Olympic Park.
– Initial research and information gathering
– Site visit: Timber Lodge and Tumbling Bay in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
– Vox-pop interviews with members of the public on site
– Creative consultation session with Colegrave School – Assembly and focus group
– Report design and collaborative completion with Ashley McCormick Projects
– Infographic design for LLDC
We ran an interactive assembly with 180 students using coloured paper to gather feedback on our questions, green for yes, orange for not sure and red for no. The students responded brilliantly and contributed with great enthusiasm. To gain more detailed responses to the project we ran a lunchtime focus group, where the students who were directly involved in FINDING NORTH joined us in a creative brainstorming session covering everything from how the project made them feel to what the purpose of public art really is.
This was gathered into a final report in collaboration with Ashley McCormick Projects and fed back to the LLDC.
something good, something useful
