St Botolphs

We collaborated with the Creative Coop on their grassroots work in the St Botolphs quarter of our home town of Colchester. A key area in the town centre, St Botolphs is earmarked for significant change over the next decade, and this project aimed to support and constructively challenge the evolving plans.

With funding from Portas Pilots High Streets fund, the Creative Coop commissioned us to undertake a detailed social, economic and cultural mapping of the area, and a series of drawings to reveal some of the hidden character of the area with fresh eyes. This formed part of an alternative understanding of the area built up through a series of local workshops and activities, including the creation of a temporary DIY venue in the disused bus Waiting Room.
