Seating Trial Marksgate (2016)
Design and delivery of community engagement events for Sustrans on their project, DIY Streets.

The seating trial in Marksgate invited members of the community to trial and test temporary seating on their highstreet over a period of two weeks. Alongside Louise Gold and Simon Wasser I delivered a series of activities aimed at welcoming local residents to share in conversation about the highstreet and the surrounding area.

The project was commissioned by Sustrans, a national charity working to build healthier and happier cities through creating places that are walkable and cycle friendly. It followed six months of research and engagement around Marksgate to involve local residents in re-designing elements of the area. Following a positive response to the temporary seating, permanent seating was installed on the highstreet for all to enjoy.
