I’m Arthi Manohar and I’m one of the Research Associates on the Leapfrog project from the Insti­tute of Design Inno­va­tion at The Glas­gow School of Art. I believe community engagement works best where it is an ongoing cumulative process, enabling relationships and trust to build and strengthen over time. Leapfrog offers an excellent platform to achieve this through co-​design. I’m excited about Leapfrog because I see this as a great opportunity to work with communities across the Highlands and Islands and Lancaster. Working on various research projects within and outside UK has given me the benefit to work with cross-​cultural communities. I intend to encompass my findings and experience in Leapfrog. I also hope to use this opportunity to widen my research in reaching more communities to develop and test new research methods through Leapfrog.
