Once Upon a Hill: An action research inquiry into community engagements with Robinswood Hill Country Park

This co-produced project involves collaboration with a community development charity, the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust. It draws on creative arts based practices to open collective reflection and learning on children and young people’s engagements with a key community asset, Robinswood Hill.

The research aims to explore the significance of the park and how it can contribute to local wellbeing in the present and future. The materials and ideas generated aim to contribute to local economic plans that put people and place at the centre of economic regeneration and development.
