The Creative Intelligence Agency is currently offering a new service as accredited Spaceshaper and Young People's Spaceshaper toolkit facilitators, helping to initiate positive change and improve local neighbourhood spaces.

 

Developed by CABE, the government's advisor for architecture, urban design and public space, Spaceshaper is a workshop-based toolkit for measuring the quality of a public space before time and money is spent on improvement. This enables a diverse range of users and professionals to come together to consider and discuss issues such as quality, use, access and personal connection, which concern specific public spaces.

The Creative Intelligence Agency is currently offering a new service as accredited Spaceshaper and Young People's Spaceshaper toolkit facilitators, helping to initiate positive change and improve local neighbourhood spaces.

 

Developed by CABE, the government's advisor for architecture, urban design and public space, Spaceshaper is a workshop-based toolkit for measuring the quality of a public space before time and money is spent on improvement. This enables a diverse range of users and professionals to come together to consider and discuss issues such as quality, use, access and personal connection, which concern specific public spaces.

 

CIA facilitates Spaceshaper workshops, in which a questionnaire and specially designed software are used to capture the views of the people who manage and use the space. The results are then presented for discussion, using both diagrams and vocabulary as a way to communicate and stimulate debate.

 

This process can:

— Promote better understanding about how the space works for different stakeholders

— Generate ideas and priorities for improvement

— Provide evidence for funding applications and decision making

— Raise aspirations and encourage people to demand more from their local spaces

 

If you would like to discuss the possibility of using the Spaceshaper toolkit, please contact Sarah Wang on sarah@thecia.org.uk.
