When data has been gathered from consultation it is sometimes necessary to communicate this to the public, preferably in a way that is more affecting than dry facts and figures.
Creative case studies provide a means of communicating the impact of the research topics in human terms, which often stray from percentages and pie charts into measures of emotional, physical and social wellbeing.
Many of these case studies were developed by Nicola and partner Sarah Nadin for Appetite Stoke and cover the experience of both participants and audiences.

Airspace Advocacy Poster
Airspace Gallery commissioned me to evaluate their practice between 2013-15, which included speaking to artists, contributors and audiences. It also involved mapping and visualising data about this period in a way that could be understood by the general public. This poster was one of the outcomes.
Airspace Impact Map
Another data graphic i produced from my research into Airspace is this impact map. It charts the impact, on artists and participants, of a single exhibition. It also shows how the exhibition fed into further activity and engaged people in subsequent projects.
Theo first encountered Mr Wilson's Second Liners at Appetite's Big Feast in 2015. He became a huge fan of the band and it changed his young life. Click below to view the animation.
The Supper Club's Story
The Supper Club was a group of people who met monthly from around the city to coproduce the programme of events for Appetite. Each of these plates illustrates a part of each group's experience of being involved with Appetite. All of the plates are linked by a common quote.
This light installation represents the journey of one London based Theatre company who developed an award winning show in Stoke-on-Trent. The lights represented their set design and each light and extension a continuation of their journey. To read more about their story click 'View More' below.
This sound sensitive illuminating cloud was created to react to Shiya Mohan's poetry. Shiya was an Appetite volunteer and after a dark past found life and light in art. Click 'view more' to read more of Shiya's story and watch the video of the cloud in action.
