Parks and people: innovative participation in public urban green space.

Following an award of a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship in 2016, I travelled to Germany and North America to explore innovative participation in public urban green space.

My research focused on urban parks and green space in relation to public engagement through social arts practice, design and planning, urban farming and gardening; I visited projects in Berlin in June 2016, and Vancouver Canada and Portland US in September and October.
