Evaluation and Community Engagement Suite of Research Tools for Activations in Canberra City 

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to provide the City Renewal Authority with a suite of 5 informed, transferable, scalable and incentivised research and community engagement tools
to evaluate activations in the city and to engage community in a continuous dialogue that assists the CRA in co-constructing a more vibrant city with both activators (artists, community groups, local business etc) and the community, and in meaningful ways.
The Play, Creativity and Culture Project, University of Canberra will:
(a) design and trial three different research models that examine the role and impact of the activations in the city;
(b) design and trial two ‘playful’ community engagement models (in accordance with the ACT Government’s "Engaging Canberrans: A guide to community engagement") that collect participant data on (i) current views about the vibrancy of the city, and (ii) strategies for enhancing vibrancy and wellbeing.

These 5 research tools will not only provide the CRA with data on 3 activations, as well as community data on the city and possible activations. These tools can then be replicated or adjusted for ongoing use by the City Renewal Authority.
