Practice Report: Story of Place, 2023

Deacon, Lesley, Lockhart, Kate, Gray, Gill and Bikova, Zeta (2023) Practice Report: Story of Place, 2023. Project Report. University of Sunderland, Sunderland. (Unpublished)

Item Type: Reports, briefing/ working papers (Project Report)


This Practice Report was co-written by Community Development Officers (Kate Lockhart and Gill Gray) and University Researchers (Dr Lesley Deacon and Zeta Bikova) to report on the work of Story of Place, over the last four years.

The research conducted by Kate and Gill was a piece of live fieldwork that took place over a period of four years (2019–2023), to understand a community. The research was active as the approach taken moved with the community itself based on where the community was, at the time of data collection, and what was needed for the community’s voice to be heard. The project itself had four core stages of data collection and analysis – these, along with findings, will be set out in the rest of this report.
