The Hands-on-Bristol collective worked with local residents, community groups artists, architects and makers to co-create a community run pocket park. The research aim underpinning the project was to use action-based design-research processes to explore how collaborative processes can positively empower communities in place-making. The project then ran in two phases, with two distinct sub-aims: To explore how can abandoned pockets of urban space be reclaimed for community use through participatory design processes and; To develop techniques which empower communities in place-making.\ud \ud The projects developed a range of methods of engagement that facilitated working closely with a wide section of the community in collaboration with students, artists and built environment professionals. The project generated initial ideas for sustainable community place-making through organizing creative consultation and co-design events, working with local stakeholders to identify pockets of abandoned space and generate debate about their use,and then to negotiate the opening up of a disused pocket of land for community use. The project used co-design principles to design and build a community space, funded by the DCLG which empowered the community to take ownership of the space in a way that led to it functioning as a successful community managed space.
