The con­sul­ta­tion with­out words short project will involve inten­sive design work fom 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 par­ents 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.
