The social, historical, cultural and democratic context of civic engagement: imagining different communities and making them happen.

Lead Research Organisation: University of Edinburgh
Department Name: Sch of Social and Political Science

Abstract

Our research studies how communities connect people, both today and in the past. These connections take many forms, but often include people coming together to seek change and pursue a different future. We are interested in the role imagination plays in how such futures are conceived and pursued. The history of people's involvement in community initiatives includes both successful innovation and frustration and disappointment, in the UK and elsewhere. Our project will learn from both scenarios. We will study community connections in different types of community (some present, some past). Using our new knowledge, together we will imagine how communities might be different and experiment with different forms of community building.

Communities are made up of people who share some things in common, but also have differences. In the light of this we want to ask four main questions: 1) What are the best ways of conceptualising, researching and promoting connected communities so that they have the potential to accommodate and benefit from social, cultural and economic differences and diverse opinions and practices? 2) What does the history of civic engagement tell us about how and why the social, historical, cultural and democratic context matters to community-building? 3) What role can imagining better futures play in capturing and sustaining enthusiasm and momentum for change? 4) Is community research being transformed by developments in research methodologies, particularly the development of creative and collaborative methods?

Our approach to these questions challenges ideas of community that focus on what is lacking, highlighting instead the role that harnessing imagination plays in shaping community futures. It brings together researchers from a range of disciplines across the social sciences and arts and humanities interested in community relationships together with partner organisations dedicated to community development in a range of locations. International colleagues will add further dimensions to the consortium's activities, acting as keynote speakers at events, and as advisory committee members.

The projects will employ a range of approaches to research, but with collaborative and participatory methods (community partners and universities working together) being central. Several projects involve going back to sites of previous research to explore what can be learned that is of relevance to to-day's debates about community. The return to sites of the Community Development Project of the late 1960s/early 1970s will include analysis of background statistics, documentary records, interviews, oral history, community arts and other community-based activities, tracing that history and its legacies down to the present. We will revisit culture and arts projects, and projects working with disadvantaged groups, all of which have sought to promote community resilience. Reflections on the lessons of these experiences will feed into planned interventions with members of 'disadvantaged' communities to fire imagination about the future and help to build resilience and a momentum for change. Another project will investigate what motivates volunteers to cross social and geographical boundaries, using mapping techniques, surveys and focus groups to capture these connections. The context of this proposal is a strong impetus globally towards people looking for new ways to participate in decision-making about issues that affect their lives, and to participate in research that involves them - the so-called 'democratisation of social research'. The various strands of research are held together by the team's shared interests in how people envisage co-operating and how these ideas get put into practice in diverse communities. Answering these questions requires working collaboratively to look at a range of different cases, both past and present, and to draw appropriate conclusions to inform current debates and visions of the future.

Planned Impact

Many groups can be identified that will benefit from this research. Most direct beneficiaries are the organizations outside of academia who have already agreed to collaborate with the projects in the consortium, including 37 whose letters of support are included in this application. Others have agreed verbally. Collectively these partners represent a very wide range of organizations including museums and galleries, charities, and national organizations as well as local community-based organizations with established links to both community members and policy-makers. This range of organizations can only grow as the research proceeds. Several of the proposed projects involve re-visiting organizations involved in previous community-university partnerships (such as those in the SECC and Beacons programmes), and further broadening of the network of organizations benefitting from the research will occur through the programme of annual conferences and other dissemination events and through the use of the project website to reach out. In the commercial private sector, efforts will be made to engage with architects and builders involved in community-building and regeneration, through invitations to the conference at which Cheshire will provide an international perspective. Similar invitations will be targeted at public, voluntary and commercial sector organizations in relation to the conferences devoted to collaborative working, fostering historical imagination, democratic methods for researching communities, the sights and sounds of imagined community futures, and comparative perspectives on community dvelopment, all of which will be of interest to commercial organizations in the cultural sector. Finally, beneficiaries will include individuals who do not necessarily have formal links to organizations. The consortium will draw on the wealth of its members' experience of engaging the wider public through dissemination events and other activities.

These diverse groups will benefit in several ways. The most direct of these relate to the outcomes of the projects that involve planned interventions to explore the potential of communities of practice to foster resilience and momentum for change among members of disadvantaged communities. Alongside these projects are others which are also designed to promote active engagement in the process of thinking about different community futures and making them happen. Community relationships are at the heart of people's quality of life, and the promotion of active engagement in community processes has the potential to contribute to this, especially if these activities are inclusive and participatory. In working towards the achievement of this ideal, the consortium's approach emphasises the importance of learning from experience, both the knowledge of previous community development initiatives in the UK and lessons derived through engagement with international partners, who will each make extended visits to allow them to feed in across the consortium. The public policy dimensions of these issues include examination of how community initiatives avoid the well-known pitfalls of 'top-down' processes, while the fact that diverse communities in the UK will be involved will allow direct engagement with the localism agenda. The fact that the consortium's work involves a programme that unfolds over 5 years means that projects later on in the schedule will be able to build on the results of the earlier work, such as the engagement with the Participedia project on participatory politics. These results will be available at the end of year one, and community partners and advisory group members will advise on how best to feed them into the later projects. In this way, the development of skills in more democratic of research among academic researchers and community members will be promoted. Efforts will also be made to maximise the legacy of the consortium's work through creation of durable resources.

Title Resilience House 
Description The 'Resilience House' was a creative exhibition that was shown at the Connected Communities Festival 2014 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. The 'Resilience House' exhibition showcased the various RCUK resilience related projects with which the University of Brighton and boingboing have been involved. Within the 'Resilience House' there were various areas that corresponded to the 5 key areas of the resilience framework and within these we displayed videos, posters, resilience guides and other artistic outputs. Young people with complex needs and mental health difficulties co-curated the event and they explained the outputs to the visitors and were also involved in interactive aspects of the house such as making a 'Resilient tablecloth' and making a 'Resilience cake'. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2014 
Impact The festival ran for 2 days and on the second day, the 'Resilience House' was viewed by 135 people (accurate visitor statistics for day one are not available). Visitors to the stand asked questions about the projects that we have been working on and were keen to learn more about how we work with the various community partners. We have received requests to exhibit the 'Resilience House' at other conferences and events in the UK. The young people who co-curated and participated in the event have reported being more confident and they have experienced improvements in their mental health. Boingboing has appointed one of the young people as an artist in residence and they have a Visiting Fellowship at the University of Brighton. Other young people have been co-trainers at numerous events and a group of the young people are undertaking a cooperative research project on resilience.

Description Many communities are excluded from decision-making processes and are marginalised in relation to civic engagement and community participation. The Imagine project sought to address these issues through a series of partnerships between local universities and non-academic communities of place, interest and identity. These partnerships fostered discussions about the significance and meaning of working together, within and across communities. Everyone accepted that 'community' was difficult to define, but mostly we felt that the term symbolised a desire to live and work together for mutual benefit, rather than for the enrichment or accumulation of power by a few in society. Hence, 'community development', as a value-based process, which aims to address imbalances in power and bring about change founded on social justice, equality and inclusion, came to the fore as a way of understanding questions of civic engagement and participation in the communities in which we live and work. In particular, the notion of 'community development' underlined the importance of co-productive research as an embedded and relational approach, rather than as quick, instrumental process.
Our finding are drawn across four distinct work streams:
In Brighton, our work set out to learn about and develop resilience based approaches with young people who face challenging life situations. Young people worked collectively to create a resilience toolkit - a resource of products and ideas for developing resilience e.g. One Step Forward, a guide developing by looked after children and Changing Lanes, a resource developed by young men with experience of the criminal justice system. The young people, in partnership with BoingBoing and the the University of Brighton School of Design, re-imagined the toolkit through the process of design.
This work and its findings demonstrated the importance of arts-based methodologies and partnership working to transform the ways that young people are supported in relation to their mental health. Of particular significance was the role of poetry, both as a form of expression and as a mode of inquiry. We also developed the idea of 'Belonging Maps', which highlighted the significance of material resources and artefacts when working with diverse communities. This stream of work explored the structures of knowledge production and sharing that occurs within communities. Our findings have addressed the questions that are concerned with how communities can research their own histories and also what methodologies are best for doing that research.
The work of the Imagine project in Brighton directly contributed to the successful expansion of this work to Blackpool through securing a 10.4 million grant.
On Tyneside, community partners and academics from Durham University explored changing perspectives on civic engagement, with particular emphasis on community-based arts and heritage projects. A key finding was that People belonging to communities of place, identity and interest need to be able to reclaim their own histories. In one part of the Imagine project, a research team explored activities, achievements and legacies of the Community Development Projects (CDPs) of the 1970's in three areas: Benwell (Newcastle), North Shields and Hillfields (Coventry). The CDPs were part of an experimental Home Office anti-poverty programme, initiated in the late 1960s in 12 'deprived' neighbourhoods, adopting an action-research approach. The CDPs understood the value of historical research and importance of documenting 'hidden histories' of local working people to counter histories of the powerful. In Benwell, North Shields and Coventry today groups of local people are keen to write their own histories to challenge the stigma still associated with the areas, thus strengthening and empowering local community groups (see www.dur.ac.uk/socialjustice/imagine/). The work and its findings demonstrated the value of arts-based activities in promoting inter-generational learning, for example through graffiti art. It demonstrated the value of historical perspectives in re-evaluating the work of community organisations in their neighbourhoods today. It showed the potential for changing the practice of museums in response to community-initiated heritage projects.
In Rotherham, the community research team looked at ways of empowering women in local communities by drawing on research that focuses on cultures, histories and identities. The focus was on developing longer-term relationships and legacies which would contribute to community cohesion.
The work and its findings demonstrated that existing community knowledge (oral, intergenerational, historical and located in practice) must be recognised and valued. It showed the way in which history matters, for example the history of the Pakistani community and their contributions to British history, for example, the second world war, needs to be recovered and valued. Such processes of recognition and valuing can lead to individual and community enrichment, for example one group of women produced a book about their use herbal remedies, which has been used in school settings and which has led to several of the participants returning to continue their own education. The work stream pointed to the way in which community activism needs to be nurtured from where women are, existing structures are not always easy for women to access and local, small initiatives work best.
In Huddersfield, community researchers worked with historians to contributions to historical knowledge and thinking. Arts and humanities co-production linked academic expertise and community experience to produce robust research whereby individuals developed skills for community development.
The work and its findings demonstrate that communities are able to articulate their own needs in a variety of outputs and forms, over which they have control. Often academics are already engaged with existing community activities - such as flourishing black history month events - and these partnerships enabled new forms of articulation. The work showed that the continuing underrepresentation of BME people in universities and other power structures can be mediated by coproduction to support skills for engagement. The work demonstrated the way in which co-production can become a dynamic gateway between grassroots activity and larger cultural institutions such as museums and galleries.
Exploitation Route We believe our findings are of use to civil servants who have an interest in community participation and civic engagement. We also have found that our findings have value for those wanting to work with universities from charities and third sector organisations. Organisations such as the Big Lottery, the Big Local, DCMS and other arts sector organisations have found our work helpful in thinking through co-production. We consider our articles to be leading the debate about how to do co-production with communities in ethical ways. We have informed the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement on our work. We have also advised RCUK and other funders on how co-production can be ethically constructed within research. We have also made a difference to people's lives - young people have gained in skills and resilience through the 'BoingBoing' network. Community groups have accessed university knowledge and skills. Communities have reclaimed their histories and created major exhibitions which thousands of people have attended. Major partnerships, between museums and galleries and universities, for example, have been set up and major awards won from subsequent collaborations. We have international links across the US, Canada and Australia and these partnerships have disseminated the work more widely.
Our headline findings are:
" Co-produced research is important. We use the term 'co-production' to describe methodologies that are collaborative, participatory and democratic and which try to access hidden or otherwise absent voices in civic life. Co-producing research has enabled us to develop methodologies that include voices and perspectives that uncover different forms of engagement, whether this be with groups of Muslim women, young people, people with complex needs or diverse groups within community settings. Community research teams are an essential part of this as they are able to set priorities that are important to them.

" Funding should be made available for open ended, experimental projects that make use of creative arts and a multiplicity of methodologies to encourage dialectical thinking. This can include groups researching hidden histories, artistic and visual understandings of engagement, including poetry, visual and relational art and approaches that rest on creating spaces for dialogue and communities of practice. Co-production enables new perspectives to be developed that can open up directions that universities might not have considered.

" Community development support is essential. Local authorities are cutting back but there needs to be staff supporting community projects and initiatives, regardless of whether or not there is a co-production partner such as a University.

" Universities are important resources for communities to research with and from.

" Knowledge production practices need to be carefully thought through in relation to how they value community knowledge and ideas. Shared outputs, e.g. books and other artistic products, can capture shared research practices.

Description The findings from this project have been utilised in a number of diverse ways - locally and nationally and internationally, and across a range of different audiences and sectors. Our work has had a strong policy impact. We have briefed the Office for Civil Society at the Cabinet Office, and there have been reported changes in the understanding of co-production, community/university partnerships and how civic engagement can be fostered through co-produced research. Our research has also informed policy thinking at the Race Disparity Unit in the Cabinet Office, where our input was described as 'fundamental to shaping the race disparity audit'. Findings have also been used by the Integration Unit at the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to inform their Empowering Women initiative, where the briefing emphasised the importance of the arts, small-scale initiatives and cross-community initiatives, all of which were present in the final call that was produced. We also briefed the Select Committee on Citizenship and civic engagement in September 2017. The project has directly led to the publication of two books: 'Reimagining Contested Communities' (Policy Press, 2018), which was co-written with the Department of Communities and Local Government, and 'Co-producing Research: a community development approach' (2019). In addition to these published books, over 65 articles have been produced across the consortium. A book launch is to be held for the Reimagining Contested Communities book involving civil servants, in Manchester in May 2018. Our work around resilience has provided the impetus for HeadStart, a £10.4 million Big Lottery Fund grant, which is funded to develop the 'Resilience Revolution' in Blackpool. This involves the expansion of Brighton-based social enterprise Boingboing to Blackpool, where it will extend the resilience-building ideas, practices and products co-developed with young people on the Imagine Project, as well as the provision of workforce training in Resilient Therapy throughout Blackpool. On a local level, we have enabled a number of community partners to become researchers in their own right, thereby moving the locus of research from the academy to the communities themselves. Community researchers have moved on to doctorates, and degrees. This has produced a number of local impacts. For example, two community-led publications 'Threads of Time' and 'Herbal Medicine', which draw upon funds of knowledge in local communities, have been widely used across schools Rotherham, and other community-led resources are available on the BoingBoing website (www.boingboing.org.uk). Various local events have been held throughout the life of project. For example, in June 2017, local government officials and arts workers in Rotherham acknowledged changes in their thinking regarding community knowledge. Local work in the North East and Coventry has led to deeper understandings of 'hope' as an important ingredient in working with communities, as well as arts methods including exhibitions and collaborative artistic activities. A major film on Park Hill is on permanent display at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. Our work has informed RCUK processes and practices. We provided a case study for the AHRC funded 'Common Cause' project which was concerned with the relationship between universities and BAME organisations. A film was shown to key members of RCUK about this which featured our work and collaborations. Catalyst funding provided a conference aimed at community researchers across a number of RCUK funded projects and participants reported changes in their confidence and ability to present their work to external audiences. We have also informed internal university practices. Our project officer, Angela Warren, trialled a new way of paying community partners easily and quickly at the University of Sheffield and this was reported to a central working group set up by Connected Communities. We presented the 'Imagine' project at the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), and our work has been used within public engagement and civic engagement contexts. Co-production of research has become more widely understood within local, national and international contexts as our work has impacted across policy, practitioner and researcher sectors. An impact case study about our work was published on the ESRC website, and our ethical systems were profiled on the ESRC website. We have informed the direction of further ESRC investments and have been consulted about our work by major funders. In all of the work packages, the university became the catalyst for further initiatives, as a result of the co-production processes initiated by Imagine. Therefore the project has impacted on universities as well as on communities and the wider publics.

Title The Resilience Framework 
Description The Resilience Framework is based on Resilient Therapy (RT), the name we've given to the set of ideas and practices originally developed by Angie Hart and Derek Blincow, with help from Helen Thomas. We took the resilience research evidence base and put it together with other sets of ideas gleaned from our practice with very disadvantaged children and families in an NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Clinic. Alongside this, Angie's adoptive parenting knowledge went into the mix and, we've collected experiences from those we are working with in our RT Communities of Practice. We distilled all these different sets of ideas into a handy RT table that summarises our approach and acts as a reminder to people of what's included. Practitioners and parents use the table to plan strategic moves with children. We've also been developing a version of the table for use with adults, and this is where we've got to so far with that, which is still work in progress, the Resilience Framework for adults. All our tables and frameworks are available as pdfs in the Resources section on the boingboing website - it has also been translated into Greek, German, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Displays of posters, banners, leaflets and booklets from the community organisations involved were viewed by everyone at the launch which helped disseminate information and people gained an understanding of each others work.
Presentations and discussion sessions encouraged discourse, feedback and the generation of new ideas and themes to explore further. Three workshops were carried out by organisations involved in the project that gave people a taster of the work they carry out and further information and resources.

The Community Radio Workshop - the aim to help Imagine residents and partners understand how they might be able to work with the two community radio stations broadcasting in Newcastle. The groups involved in the session saw that involving themselves as broadcasters would promote their project and provide the community radio station with content. Further development might involve joint funding bids on shared interests.
Still Listening Workshop - looked at oral history, really helpful for people researching/archiving local history and people that carry out oral history recording as part of the Imagine2 project. Information incl. good practice in interview techniques, recording equipment, editing software.
Still Moving Workshop - West Newcastle Picture History Collection and St James Heritage and Environment group. The session provided a taster of their work: collecting and making available to the local community and wider public old photographs and film material relevant to the west end of Newcastle, and using photography and film to document and explore the history of the area. Useful for anyone involved in the Imagine2 project.
