Civic University


In 2021, we were commissioned to help the University of Exeter with a landmark Civic University Agreement.


We carried out a public consultation, with a major online survey and pop-up events across Exeter’s communities. The events were playful in nature, and took place important and relevant locations across the city, such as community parks.

Music accompanied researcher’s demonstrations and we successfully got to the heart of the city’s relationship with the institution by talking to people in their own environment in a fun way. This informed how the university will work with city partners to deliver shared goals on community priorities from net zero to health and well-being.
