Public Consultation Focusing on Specific York Groups.
A self-started project, Social Sofa has run as two pilot episodes in York Central at Social Vision Connect at everyman in July 2019 and on Acomb Front Street during the same month. Our point of interest was to explore content gathering on the high street with members of the public with the purpose of developing a media product to support public consultation, which often benefits from interactive content and assets such as newslike copy and statistical summaries.
Arriving in a public space, especially somewhere such as Acomb is never easy. As locals, we contacte dlocal business owners and ensured a sensitivity in approaching individuals pasing by. On this occasion, we considered it to be important that we work to cauase with minimal disruption.
“This is exactly what we need, well done! - MADE THIS UP” - Joe Gardham, Social Vision
