Newham 50th Anniversary chalk

On the first weekend of August, the IGP hosted its first community event at the Newham 50th Anniversary festival: a celebration of Newham borough and its communities. The IGP's Mobile Research Station was set up on a local street, and its friendly resident researchers invited passersby to draw, write and tell us about what a prosperous community means to them.

The IGP wil be reflecting on the first community event in the coming weeks, and will draw upon lessons learned in the upcoming events. We have Tweeted some generous residents' thoughts.
