The focal point for the project and associated workshop was the Creative Citizen workshop curated by Katy Bauer at PRSC in Bristol in January 2012. 

The exhibition illustrated the importance of material objects, theatre props, china mugs and t-shirts, to move from the ‘paper world’ of planning back to the streets. Art can raise the debate ‘in the real world’, illustrating through flashmobs or theatre, street art or guerilla gardening, the range of concerns local people have with service provision, aesthetics or design. The objects and images displayed, and the china mugs designed and crafted by PRSC to include the logos and images of each group, demonstrated how tactile approaches can also be used in place- making.
