Cast your minds back a couple of months to the end of May…

The research project took part in a community outreach festival called Riverfest. This was a good opportunity for the project to conduct field research while engaging with a large section of the local community. Many residents knowledgeable about the area were able to give us their contact information, and a few more were interested in following the project. Personally, I believe that the exercise was successful in bringing awareness of the project to the community; one on one interviews with those willing to offer their time would be very helpful and exciting! Overall I’d say that the project’s involvement with Riverfest was a success as we collected many leads which will be eagerly followed up.
