Loraine Leeson at Creative Citizens conference
18-19 September 2014, Royal College of Art, London

Loraine Leeson presents at Creative Citizens conference

 Dr Loraine Leeson presented her Active Energy project together with Prof. Ann Light of Northumbria University, a member of the project’s interdisciplinary team in a session entitled Citizen Innovation with the Geezers: DIY Design and the Thames Water Turbine.

Creative Citizen: The Conference is part of Media, Community and the Creative Citizen, a research council funded project exploring the value of creative citizenship. One strand of the project is community-led design whereby local people come together to redesign spaces and services in their neighbourhood, an approach increasingly adopted as a means of ensuring that new buildings and other products reflect the needs, creativity and aspirations of the people who use them.
