The consultation without words short project will involve intensive design work from the 10 people working on the Leapfrog project from both Lancaster and Glasgow. It will also involve a creative workshop on Tuesday 3rd February with an invited range of external partners who are looking for practical assistance in developing new approaches to consultation that does not rely on participants writing. The week long project will culminate in the demonstration of the tools we design in an interactive demonstration event on the morning of Friday 6th February. Attendees of this event will have the opportunity to take these tools away with them for their own use. We will be following up with these attendees to evaluate the tools we have created but also to help them adapt the tools to better fit their particular needs.
