Task and videos

Here are the materials you need for Week 3 of the intensive. We’ll also deliver these direct to your SLACK space… but if you want to get ahead of the curve you will find them here.

Other optional resources relating to the themes of this week (Scoping) can be found in the Resources section of the website.


Eleanor Barrett from Brick Box.

Championed as industry pioneers by funders, commissioners and peers alike, Brick Box have earned their position as the boisterous new kids on the cultural block. Using their unique brand of charming absurdity they build audiences, authentically connect with communities and instigate change. With Rosie Freeman, Eleanor co-founded Brick Box in 2010. Initially setting up in Brixton Village with a cafe and events programme led by local people, they soon won major funding from the GLA. Since 2017 they’ve taken their model of co-led, co-designed events to Bradford where they play role in the city.
