Productive Margins: Regulation for Engagement

Lead Research Organisation: University of Bristol
Department Name: Law

Abstract

The ways in which we regulate for engagement need a radical re-design. When businesses, professionals and policy-makers set up forums to 'allow' communities to participate in decision-making all too frequently community members' voices are not heard. Academic approaches to regulation are stuck in a cul-de-sac of co-regulation, which only enables relatively powerful actors to be engaged. We start from a different place. We ask: How can we harness the expertise, knowledge and passions of communities to design more effective systems for community engagement? In doing so, we aim to turn the academic and policy-maker dialogue around, from regulation of engagement to regulating for engagement.

This programme will bring together a wide range of experts to investigate and challenge how and where community engagement takes place. The experts are drawn from
- People working within communities
- Academic researchers

Researchers and communities will work together to co-produce the research programme. Together they will decide what is to be researched and design the ways in which research is carried out. Community members will be involved in doing the research and getting the research ideas out to other communities, policy-makers, service providers and businesses.

We will interact through
- A Programme Website and other digital social media to generate research ideas that meet community needs and discussion concerning the nature of engagement
- The Productive Communities Research Forum which will decide on the research agenda and design projects
- Half-yearly Festivals to get our ideas out to a wider audience of communities, policy-makers and business.

The strength of the partnership between Bristol and Cardiff universities lies in the diversity of communities we work with, from de-industrialised south Wales' valleys, to inner-city ethnic minority communities and social enterprises experimenting with alternative ways of organising. Research projects co-produced by those working in communities and academic researchers will be focused around three themes which reflect the expertise of the academic researchers:

- Mobilising neighbourhoods: examining how law, geography and the social make-up of neighbourhoods offer bridges and / or create barriers to communities engaging with policy-makers, government and business

- Harnessing digital space: experimentation with websites, social media and mobile phone technologies to create digital spaces that allow communities to harness existing expertise and develop new skills to engage in policy-making and politics

- Spaces of dissent: working in collaboration with key organisations and activists, we will identify how new understandings and practices are developed when groups offer resistance, exploring if and how these practices create new ways of engaging

Our 'cross-border' collaboration between communities and academics in southwest England and south Wales will enable us to contrast the different ways that community engagement is enabled and controlled in two nations of the devolved UK. These insights will allow us, together, to create new bottom-up experiments in community engagement.

Planned Impact

Professional, government and business organisations
The programme will directly impact upon the concerns of policy and practice communities. By mapping the terrain and rules of engagement from the perspective of communities at the margins, it will influence the dispositions of a wide range of organisations. Our work will influence local government in designing mechanisms to involve citizens in decision-making on e.g. planning, use of public space, the users of housing or care services. Businesses producing digital technologies will benefit from community expertise on how technology can be utilised by previously excluded groups, producing new markets (e.g. the recent collaboration of Glynnoch Community Centre with Spacehive). Universities and teaching institutions will gain new insights into the ways in which teaching and learning can develop knowledge, confidence and expertise in diverse communities and their ability to engage as active citizens. Scientists will be able to develop new ways for scientific and community knowledges to be interwoven to challenge proposals e.g. for open-cast mining or new superstores. We expect that the Legal Services Commission and Solicitors Regulation Authority will be assisted in developing guidance on regulation relating to Deaf and hard of hearing people. The arts, such as National Theatre Wales and Bristol Old Vic will gain access to new interdisciplinary insight on engaging with communities and on place-making through theatre.

Community and 3rd sector organisations
The research programme will enable community and third sector organisations to impact upon research, engage in as well as shape the ways in which they are regulated, and to benefit from the transfer of knowledge and skills. The opening demonstration projects are devised with these purposes in mind and the knowledges they and the other projects produce will be filtered through to other organisations (for example, through the Festivals and placements). A particular focus of the organisations which attended the preliminary forum meeting was on the "legacy" of research, whether that be (for example) through enhancing their infrastructural abilities or developing softer research and developmental skills. We are committed to developing this legacy element of the research, which will be organisationally specific. Here we set out a thematic sample of the many organisations, beyond the community partners named in the Case for Support, who could be drawn into the programme through Festivals and by joining the Forum (though each may well be involved in more than one theme):

Harnessing Digital Space: Knowle West Media Centre; Bristol CAB; Citizens Advice SW; Citizens Advice (England and Wales); Action on Hearing Loss; British Deaf Association; Deaf Access Cymru

Neighbourhood and Locality: Bristol Council of Mosques, Somali Development Group, Malcolm X Centre; Racial Equality Council (Bath); Centre for Regeneration in Wales

Spaces of Dissent:Golden Oldies; Creativity works; Bath People First; Wilts and Swindon Users network; 'Silai for Skills' women's project; Barton Hill Settlement; Bristol Radical History; Bristol Refugee Rights; Bristol Hospitality Network; Bristol Energy Network; Centre for Sustainable Energy
 
Title Activist Valentine Card 
Description The Activist Valentine Card (Relationship Matters Project, Engagement phase of 4Ms project, Productive Margins) 40 young people from urban and rural south wales to joined 'Relationship Matters' campaign (see influencing policy and practice entry). The annotated ruler slips from the Welsh valleys met hundreds more ruler slips from Cardif (see the artefact entry Shame Chain for details on the significance of the ruler slips). Three slips with messages for change, were pasted to hang from a cut-out heart inside a red valentines card, which included a clear message listing the young people's recommendations for the education measures in the Violence Against Women Bill (2015). The card also included a policy poem, 'It's Not Too Late' (see artefact entry, 'policy poem'). Each card was sealed with a lipstick kiss. The kiss connected to the global Violence Against Girls and Women campaign, Red My Lips. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact Each card was personally addressed to every politician in Wales, and hand delivered to the National Assembly for Wales at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. Indeed, the kiss connected our local action to the global Violence Against Girls and Women campaign, Red My Lips. Comments from Assemnbly Members who received the cards: ""thanks for the valentine's card. Healthy relationship education is extremely important" Gwyn R Price AM "A truly lovely gesture and a good way to make the point. Please say a huge thank you" Janet Finch-Saunders AM "They are absolutely right. The duty to teach children about healthy relationships should be in the Gender Based Violence Bill. Such a creative way to get your message across. " Eluned Parrot AM The Activism Valentine Card became an artefact to read view and touch in the Graphic Moves exhibition in Cardiff (Abacaus), Merthyr (Redhouse) and at the Riverfront (Newport).

Title Film - Graphic Moves 
Description The Film Graphic Moves was co-created with young people as part of the project 'Mapping, Making and Mobilising in Merthyr: Using creative methods to engage change with young people (Oct 2014-Sept 2015, see www.productivemargins.com) The '4M's' project - part of the 'Productive Margins: Regulating for Engagement' programme - involved working with young people, academics, community members/ organisers, and creative artists in North Merthyr Tydfil to map young peoples' experiences of place. In this section we report the arts-based workshop that led to the co-creation of the film 'Graphic Moves'. Our Approach Central to these workshops was creating an immanent methodology, practices with dynamic flexible structures to enable the making of the 'more than' or aesthetic 'potentiality' of a thing, or a lived relation, appear - and for us it is the entanglement of us, the room, young people, the materials, the ideas, we are working with freedom to move - expressive elbow room. These pARTicipatory methodologies enabling the conditions for art to touch " living bodies and induces transformations in those bodies which affect and move them" (see Ivinson et al. 2017; Renold 2018). A series of twelve arts based workshops were designed by sound, visual, and filmmaking artists and offered to young people in a local youth centre and a school (February-April 2015). The locale was on of the most deprived, ex-mining neighbourhoods in Wales, Merthyr Tydfil. Incorporating the unexpected Shortly after the young people became in involved, the Channel 4 documentary series SKINT, a year in the making, and broadcast over 3 episodes were aired on three consecutive Mondays. The effect was more than we could have imagined and suddenly the workshops took on a new urgency and became places where young people wanted to experiment with ways to answer back to SKINT. The airing of SKINT and the young people's reactions that were revealed as they worked with found objects, cameras and audio recorder, unearthed the power of the stigma of place (see Thomas, 2017). In 2016 when we made the film the effects of austerity were also evident as local amenities disappeared and support services were withdrawn. The young people expressed through their art how they were felt appalled, shamed and angry by the way they were portrayed and forgotten. The workshops led to the creation of a new film - 'Graphic Moves' - featuring artistic outputs (drawings/paintings, sculptures, visual projections, soundscapes, poems, and narrative accounts). Workshop 1 Mashing up the land This began with commissioning a local artist to create a 3D map of the local area sourced from local wood. Artist Seth Oliver suggested going around the youth centre to find objects in the local landscape. The natural and discarded objects were brought back to youth centre and art room and were used to create collages. In the school, the young people were already used to working with their art teacher creating more than human life forms from rubbish. Bits of plants, nature and litter became the material to stick, build and paste. Collages portrayed the beauty of the nature in the local landscape and featured in the subsequent film, Graphic Moves. Workshop 2 The projection workshop, Filmmaker, Heloise Godfrey-Talbot, taught young people to use a professional video camera to take still and moving images. She led them outside in small groups and young people took shots of, for example, wind gently blending daffodils growing in the grass in the school grounds. Here we paid attention to the micro movements of nature and place. These shots became part of the subsequent film 'Graphic Moves'. As they looked at their landscape, two girls created an audio narrative of their experiences of belonging to place, which features in the film. Inside the school and youth centre Heloise taught young people to projector still and moving images taken outside of hills, flowers and buildings onto walls. We experimented with projecting images of landscape onto bodies, feet, stomach, head and arms. The effects entangle people with place. Local past-present-future landscapes were projected onto bodies, so that bodies became place and place became bodies - this entanglement became a strong refrain in the film, Graphic Moves. In the film, still and moving images of place map onto feet, torsos, heads, faces, legs. In one workshop, young people drew patterns of their journeys to school and around their neighbourhood on a map of Merthyr pinned to a wall. The projection effects play with multiple scales of speed, movement and juxtaposed mages of people in place. Workshop 3 Found sounds and community beats Sound artist Rowan Talbot created workshops using professional sound equipment in walking tours led by young people around the street of Merthyr. They recorded sounds of the place; cars, weather, voices and screams. They experimented with mixing sounds to create soundscapes. One of the most prominent sounds, the sound of walking; shoes crisply clacking on a hard surface, became a narrative strand that opened and closed the film Graphic Moves and features in places throughout, offering a sonic representation of the pace of movement of people across time and space. Access to the workshops We advertised the workshops with dates when the artists would be in the youth centre and brief descriptions of the activities. Some workshops worked well and some worked less well. Some worked first time and others had to be changed and nuanced throughout. In some, the peer group dynamics were generative and it seemed everyone had fun, in others the peer group dynamics became unproductive and worked against, instead of for, inclusion and we had to intervene or ask for support from the youth workers. We had to be vigilant, flexible and use our knowledge of working with vulnerable young people and our trusting relationships with the youth workers to support the artists.

Impact Film: Graphic Moves Elements from workshops described above became the segments of the film 'Graphic Moves'. The place where the young people are growing up, coms into view in a multiplicity of diverse ways depending on what is drawn on to become multi-sensorial assemblages at any moment. The film diffracts the place through multiple lenses. Sections of the film touch on deep feelings of belonging and rootedness as well as difficult and challenging topics, such as feeling unsafe. The film speaks back to pathologising representations of Merthyr and celebrates young people's relationship with their place, its people and its landscape. Three major public exhibitions were organised and enabled difficult, challenging and painful issues - as well as joyous celebrations of place - to be communicated to wider audiences through the affective power of art to move. The exhibitions sparked a great deal of community, social media, and public debate that is still reverberating and generating interest and impact. In addition, two original dance pieces were created/performed at two exhibitions. A professional photographer and a filmmaker used drone cameras to capture moving images to document the exhibitions. The choreographer/dancer, Jên Angharad responded to artworks and the reactions of the public through body movements. The footage was made into a film called Body Swing (see artefact entry, 'body swing'). Brief summary of Outputs and Impact • Graphic Moves showcased at three exhibitions: Abacus Art Gallery, Cardiff (1-3 May 2015); Riverfront, Newport, 5-11 June 2015 - pictures available here); Red House/Theatr Soar, Merthyr Tydfil (16 June 2015 - pictures available here and here) • A film exploring creative research methods was made during the Riverfront Exhibition and feature on the Sage online research methods website (See separate 'publication' entries, Renold and Ivinson, Sage Online Resources). • Two original dance pieces were created and performed by the Welsh choreographer Jên Angharad at two exhibitions and are documented on film. • A film, Body Swing, was created to capture the affective power of artworks through a dancer's body. Jên Angharad danced within the Riverfront Exhibition space and her movements capture and express the affective charge of artworks created by the young people. The film expresses the affective power of art to move through dance. The film was produced with a drone camera that circulated around the artifacts in the Riverfront Exhibition and followed the dancer's movements. It was co-produced with a filmmaker, Renold and Ivinson). Follow on Political Intervention and Co-Production: Sexual Harassment and Relationship Matters Campaign and youth resource development (see separate entries, Renold, in particular those relating to the co-production of the resource, AGENDA: A young people's guide to making relationships matter and the artefacts 'words won't pin me down') On-Going Engagement with Arts, Culture, and Heritage Organisations and Communities (see separate entries, Elliott and Thomas) Graphic Moves will tour in 2018 as part of a follow on project, 'Song lines on the road - Life lines on the move!' funded by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) through an impact accelerator grant (10K) warded to Bright and Ivinson (MMU), in a series of sharing events between coalfield towns in the north of England and south Wales in 2018.

Title Graphic Moves Art Drawer 
Description The Graphic Moves art drawer was a six month project that enabled Professor Renold and Professor Ivinson to collaborate with the original artists team, Seth Oliver and Heloise Godfrey-Talbot and a new artists, Liz Price to create an artefact that could capture and share the making of, and dartafacts generated in, the Graphic Moves workshops and exhibition. What began as an art-book (made from selected images from the arts-based workshops, exhibition and exhibits, evolved into an art-drawer - that is, a drawer (salvaged from the participating school) that was up-cycled and crafted to hold 10 artefacts (some new, some from the exhibition). Each artefact has a designated and secure holding place inside the draw - and there are two sections to the drawer that can be lifted out. The drawer is case in bespoke oak with GRAPHIC MOVES scored into the word. It contains the following instructions. G       Projecting place   R        Drawer This drawer was reclaimed from the art store room in Pen Y Dre High School and gifted to the project to house the artefacts created for Graphic Moves.   A        Art Book Open this book to unfold the images that capture the process of making Graphic Moves.    P        Mashing up the land Feel the landscape moulded from mashed up newspapers that stigmatised our place.     H       Good Day Bad Day Read the illustrated story of the day the martians landed in our town.    I          Graphic Moves View the film created to speak back to the Chanel 4 Documentary SKINT and that show how we feel about our place.    C        Ruler HeART Lift up the ruler and read.    M      Feel What I Feel Touch this piece of skirt.    O       Sculpting Merthyr Life Pick up the nails inspired by the contours of Merthyr life.   V        Words Won't Pin us Down Flick fast.

Title Gurnos Zebras 
Description Young people involved in the project carried out a public action to highlight local issues to policymakers - attracting newspaper coverage. 
Type Of Art Performance (Music, Dance, Drama, etc) 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact Carrying out a public action with young people on three key issues in Merthyr: street lighting, road safety, and closing a subway. This involved dressing as zebras to welcome powerful decision-makers to Merthyr and taking them on a tour of the area. This attracted a full page report in the 'Merthyr Express' newspaper. 
 
Title Its not too late - POLICY POEM 
Description This poem was created with over 40 teen girls across three different secondary schools to support the Young People's Promise campaign for better Healthy Relationships as part of the Valentine Card Activism (see Valentine Card artefact). Over 6 weeks, as Professor Renold visited each school (one of which was the school that instigated the campaign, The Relationship Matters project, Productive Margins) each group wrote a new line, or edited. The end result was a collectively written policy poem, entitled "It's not too late". 
Type Of Art Creative Writing 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The valentine card poem, had the policy poem printed and pasted inside. The last line of this poem powerfully extended the hegemonic 'healthy relationships' discourse of 'respect' and 'consent' to the policy-making process itself ('policy-making is about respect and consent too'). The poem was read by each assembly member who recieved the cards. The poem was also included in the young people's lobbying letter posted on the Violence Against WOmen's Action group for the Young People's Promise Campaign. Roses are red, violets are blue It's not too late, for me and you To change the law That can change our lives And end the violence So we can survive and thrive We need student champions We need proper teacher training We need a real relationships education To stop girl shaming and boy blaming So when it's time to vote Please think of our ode We need YOU to take action Because you're in control Roses are red, violets are blue Respect and Consent Is about policy change too

Title Life Support - Film 2017 
Description This short film Life Support was a collaborative project with nine young people and workers from Forsythia Youth, two academics (Emma Renold, Cardiff University and Gabrielle Ivinson, Manchester Metropolitan University), and two artists (Heloise Godfrey-Talbot and Rowan Talbot). It was part-funded by the ESRC/AHRC Productive Margins Programme (productivemargins.co.uk) in the final phase as a pilot project with seed corn funding. We co-produced a series of activities and workshops with the artists, youth workers and young people. Next we describe the methodology. Runaway Methodology An academic paper, Runaway Methodology is in progress. Our method can be captured by three steps: (1) Event: setting up an event; participating alongside others while attuning to the micro intensities of moments within the event; (2) Run(a)way: enabling initial ideas that emerge and (3) Arts-based workshops: providing arts materials and techniques to enable initial ideas to be expressed through other media, and so by reframed ideas as matter they can become objects/artefacts/'darta' (Renold et al. 2016) for further reflection and wider public communication. The basis of the approach is to capture ideas in the making and enable them to stay alive and active by offering a pallet of materials to enable expression. We describe the steps in more detail below. (1) Event We set up events sometimes based on what participants ask us to set up, such as the physical activities that this group choose to undertake on the residential (Giant Swing, Zip wire, Aero Ball and Rock Climbing) and sometime we set up events around art materials such as the workshops we orchestrated between the physical activities on the residential weekend. During a residential at an Activity Centre the zip wire activity fulfilled the groups' requirements for a challenging, physical activity that literally took them and us to an edge. (2) Runaway After the activity a long piece of paper (runway) was rolled out on the art-room floor and everyone wrote or drew something to 'land' expressions of what it had felt as part of the activity. Some wrote words or phrases to capture the emptions (affects) that had been experienced after we had climbing a high tower, put ourselves into a harness and launched our bodies over a precipice. Such events enable us to relive an emotion such as fear (in a safe environment), to feel it, and as part of that feeling to evoke past fears. The past and present feelings are experienced bodily and bodies might reconnect with patterns of feelings that have been created through prior evoked experiences (of fear). A runway is both a landing platform, where ideas are landed, and a take off platform, where new ideas take off. We have found that the size and width of the paper, the way it can be rolled out before everyone, so that everyone can gather round it and the way it can be rolled up afterwards to store ideas, is particularly effective. The runway is the first invitation to communicate through a medium other than the spoken word. So we move from speech to depiction (word and drawings). (3) Arts-based workshops In this step we move from speech and early depictions on the Runway to art media. By offering a pallet of materials and tools such as a piece of silk, a blank sheet, paints, paper, straws, glue, glitter, string, nails, hammer, tweezers, sticky tape, coloured string and piece of wood, we try to enable expression in different forms or modalities that go beyond the limitations of the spoke word. We think very careful about what to offer, in what kind of space and using what kind of words or instructions. At this stage we usually work closely with an artist to co-produce the workshops materials and space. We try to enable 'anything' to happen while remaining very aware that for example, the space, the shape of a room, the amount of light, the number of tables or pieces of silk, as well as the size of the paint-brushes - all become part of the material assemblage that shapes what might emerge. The Artifacts: Chair, Silks, 3D book and The Artbox The artifacts produced in these workshops, such as the Chair and Silks have travelled to many venues and are described in detail in other entries. The artifacts have the power to move and represent the young people in a policy making events, community festivals and forum and at academic conferences and workshops. The young people's artifacts inspired the creation of the ArtBox and the Artbook. The Film; Life Support Life Support is a film dedicated to the young people and staff at the Forsythia Youth project, North Merthyr. The young people explained the film as follows, 'It draws upon our experiences from an arts-based adventure project that helped us explore what was troubling us. We wanted others, especially those in power, to feel how we feel. We learned that resilience is more than us. It is in people and place, in friends and family, and most of all, in Forsythia. We started with anger and we became so much more'. The young people created a poem to express their experience. We are so much more. We are fear We are anger We are pride We are joy We are silk We are human We are equal We are one We are Forsythia YOUTH! By BRONWEN Life Support Film showings The film was premiered at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff at the International Women's Day Festival,12 March 2017 to an audience of 300. The film continues to be show at community venues and academic conferences worldwide. Manchester Metropolitan University awarded an impact accelerator grant to Professor Gabrielle Ivinson and Dr Geoff Bright in 2018. Life Support will be shown at events in six industrialised coalfield communities in the north of England and south Wales ex-mining valleys in events co-hosted with community partners - Unite Community and the Co-operative College

Impact Productive Margins activism The film became part of the young people's campaign against the closure of the Forsythia Youth Facility when Communities First ends. On the 14th February 2017, the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children announced that the Communities First Programme would be phased out by March 2018. Although the Forsythia Youth Facility was established long before Communities First in response to the needs of young people on a housing estate, the youth workers were funded through Communities First money. On hearing the news of possibly and imminent closures Forsythia Youth Facility the young people mounted a twitter campaign and the film Life Support became part of the protests campaign. The young people took their case to the Welsh Government. Forsythia Youth remains open yet with reduced staff and with the loss of one of the pivotal youth leaders who had sourced the money and resources to open the Facility two decades previously. In the process of redundancies and enforced job applications, her post was downgraded making it emotionally too distressing for her to reapply. The youth centre lost a pivotal and deeply loved champion and we lost vital access, a trusted colleague and an inspirational youth leader. Our pain, like that of the young people's, is reflected in Life Support. Texts accompanying film sequences in Life Support: 'This place is my life, it means the world to me' 'Forsythia is the heart-beat of Merthyr's young people' 'Government cuts are slowly strangling valleys communities' 'stop stop stop they need to listen enough is enough' The following is a sample of messages posted on the young people's campaign site and listed at the end of the film before the credits. We dedicate this film to all the children, young people, staff and visitors who keep the heartbeat of Forsythia Youth pumping. If this place closes, the lifeline that these young people need so much will be lost forever. If this centre closes it will be an act of neglect. It's a second home to many young people This youth centre gives children memories to last a life-time. This project saves lives They accepted me for who i am It offers the most life changing experiences and trips that deeply inspire us as young people! I for sure look up to each and everyone of the youth workers at forsythia youth as role models for me in the future One of our favourite childhood places so many opportunities and experiences This place has taught me all the values of life and so much more it's just amazing Without this youth I'd be so lost Been involved with forsythia for around 8 years now, and when I say it changed my life I 100% mean it! Without this project and the fabulous staff I would honestly not be where I am today and closing this project would prevent generations from accessing the same life changing opportunities that I got! Closing this youth will be closing a family! There's bonds so strong within that's so special. The Forsythia Youth Facility remains open with reduced staff.

Title Metal Mash up, by the angry 12 year olds 
Description This poem was created by three girls and one boy during the "Mashing up the land" workshop as part of the making of the artefacts for the Graphic Moves exhibition and film. This session involved pulping pathologising newspaper headlines of the place in which they lived to re-create new images and narratives. During the pulping session, as the young people were stirring the pulp in orange boxes, they began to sing all their favourite songs. Facilitating the workshop, Professor Renold offered to create a poem based upon all their favourite song lyrics. They jumped at the opportunity and the following poem was created. METAL MASH UP By the angry 12 year olds If you look in the mirror and don't like what you see  You will find out first hand what it's like to be me  The world is ugly  But you're beautiful to me  I'm going to show my scars for all the broken  Assembling their philosophies  From pieces of broken memories  This is gospel for the fallen ones  In the end as we fade into the night  Imagine living like a king someday  They can't stop us let them try  I am not ashamed  I'm radioactive, RADIOACTIVE

Description Running before and during the policy brief event, was a participatory arts project, Paper City, by Davis & Jones, which ran from 19th to 21st January 2015. Davis & Jones make artworks through occasions, dialogues and relationships; working with people and places to explore how we connect. Paper City set out to explore how spaces of the city might be re-imagined as more inclusive places, and where women's voices can be heard. These collaborations between the artists and participants created a series of paper installations that recreated and reimagined spaces in the city, which were displayed at the launch event for the policy brief.

Title Ruler Skirt 
Description The Ruler Skirt (Relationship Matters Project, engagement phase of 4Ms, Productive Margins). In the very first lunchtime meeting of the Relationships Matter club, one of the girls shared with us how 'some boys, they use rulers to lift up girls' skirts' (e.g. if they were bending over a desk to reach for a book, or pick up their school bag). No sooner had the words been spoken, than one of the other girls had materialized the event in ink, in bold capital letters: 'RULER TOUCHING'. Professor Renold invited the girls to imagine what else the ruler could do. They discussed how experiences of sexual violence are often ruled out (e.g. normalized or silenced); how schools are not 'measuring up' with their narrow focus on targets and testing; and how girls and women are have been regulated and 'ruled'! ('rule her, RULE HER, rule her with your ruler'). Very quickly, they all wanted to bend the rules, rewrite the rules. The following week, the girls wrote comments that sexually shamed girls on printed paper rulers. These paper rulers turned into paper chains to connect with how sexual violence shackles them (see Shame Chain artefact). At their request, Professor Renold bought in bendy acrylic rulers which the girls graffitied, and then from discussing whether to turn them into a ruler-monster, a ruler-cape, and ruler-bunting, the girls discussion decided they wanted to wear them, first a jacket, then a cape - they settled on where the started, and the gladiator style ruler-skirt was created.

Year Produced 2015 
Impact The Ruler Skirt, as a awareness-raising change-making object has had a number of notable and significant impacts, sharing the methodological process of how to craft data into artefacts in participatory projects and in ways that can simultaneously affect change in safe and creative ways on sensitive topics - for the participants this was about making the personal political without revealing to much of themselves. 1) The skirt was worn by one of the girls in their school assembly, 'raising awareness about healthy relationships' to 300 pupils and 20 teachers 2) The RULER theme was the catalyst for a piece of direct action (see Valentine Card artefact) 3) The girls wore the ruler skirt at their invited keynote at the Welsh Women's Aid annual conference (March 2015, n=300). 3) During the Graphic Moves arts-based phrase, the ruler skirt featured in the Graphic Moves film, and was transformed into the artefact The Ruler Swing, which featured at three exhibitions (Riverfront, Newport; Abacus Cardiff; Redhouse in Merthyr). Since then (it is now March 2018) the Ruler Skirt has been worn, touched, heard and read by over 4000 people at over 20 different academic, practitioner, youth and school events, conferences and protests for young people, politicians, teachers, educational practitioners, the public in Wales, England, Sweden, New York and Finland. Each time, Professor Renold shares its journey on Facebook and twitter for participants to see. Notable moments include: Professor Renold wearing the skirt at the United Nations Headquarters panel 27 Feb 2018 (n=75); at the Girls' Rights in Wales Conference 2015 (n=500 teen girls); and at the Welsh Government's National Headteachers Conference (n=250 headteachers). Digitised, the Ruler Skirt was successful in being professionally photographed and featured in the Merthyr Rising Festival, May 2017, and will feature as part of the SELF/OTHER exhibition in Manchester in the Autumn 2018. The story of the making of the ruler skirt features in the co-authored paper with the teen girls in the Routledge Handbook on Gender and Sexual Violence (Libby et al.), in the academic open access journal article (Renold 2018) and in their co-authored case study, Ruler-heART in AGENDA: A Young people's guide to making positive relationships matter (Renold 2016).

Title Ruler Skirt Swing 
Description The Ruler-Skirt-Swing, was created as part of the Relationship Matters project's exhibition as part of the wider Graphic Moves touring exhibition (see Graphic Moves entry). The ruler-skirt hangs on chains (to connect to the artefact, "shame chain") from a child's swing. A soundscape created from the sound and teen girls' conversations in their local park for the making of their story, "Words won't pin me down" (see Other in publications entry) is played on a loop. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact This artefact, or dartafact (renold 2018) has been exhibited at numerous events and conferences in London, Cardiff, Newport and Merthyr Tydfil. It carries a powerful message of the ways in which creative arts-based methodologies can generated and communicate difficult and sensitive issues, such as street harassment and sexual violence experienced by young people. For example, at the 2017 Anticipations conference members of the 4Ms/graphic moves (Productive Margins) team, shared, through performance the making of data and dartafacts, including the ruler-skirt swing. Kerri Facer's reflections included the following statement about our performance: "Two important and powerful interventions in this area were the curated session from the Cardiff Futures team that both evoked and analysed the emotional and affective issues of grounded futures work with young women experiencing sexual violence and their reframing of this to create alternative futures"

Title Runway of Disrespect 
Description The Runway of Disrespect (Relationship Matters Project, Engagement phase of 4Ms project, Productive Margins) The first audio-recorded session with the girls began with sharing the different ways in which some boys their age, in and out of school, routinely 'disgusted' them with rape 'banter' ). By the end of the first session the release of words, phrases and emojis into the space via spoken word and onto the flip-chart paper in ink became a powerful refrain and a mode of expression Professor Renold worked with further. Brining in a large spool of quality paper (1 m × 100 m) to the second session, she rolled it out so that it stretched almost the entire length of the room (approximately 20ft). Each session began with the rhythmic movement of the roll unfolding, like a celebrity red carpet, in which girls shared experiences that they 'had never talked about like this before'. No longer hidden, or taboo, the words were both recognized and respected. As each week progressed, and in the repetition, something shifted. Words that were previously hidden, or heavy with anger and shame, became a little lighter and annotating the roll in each session became 'fun'. The roll seemed to become a significant expressive refrain that was enlivened with each rolling-out - a movement, which seemed to have a potentially transformative effect, opening itself and the girls up to new elaborations and pathways. It also became a safe and containing activity/artefact (and could be rolled up and taken away). It certainly seemed to be a process that captured their imagination, and it materialized as their first d/artaphact: 'the runway of disrespect', used in school assemblies, exhibitios and conferences (see impact below). 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The Runway of Disrespect was used by the girls in their school assemblies (n=300 students, 20 teachers). The 17ft 'Runway of Disrespect' was rolled out and a barrier was created with the chairs, to re-orient the students as they entered the hall to walk by, look down on and read the runway before taking their seats. As the assembly drew to a close, students were invited to stamp on the 'Runway of Disrespect' as loudly and as forcibly as they wanted to, thus embodying the girls' call to join them in stamping out sexual violence in schools and communities. This activity was carefully planned with the girls and Professor Renold to inject fun, movement and energy in ways we hoped might generate a lightness of being-becoming activist on a serious weighty issue. It was also a moment in which students could participate in and thus connect with the girls' own affective embodied practice of creating through and with experience. Following the assembly, the Runway of Disrespect was developed further in order for it to be used and shared as an awareness-raising artefact in practitioner workshops on healthy relationships. The girls worked with professional artist Seth Oliver and Professor Emma Renold (Graphic Moves phase). It was divided into 4 sections, laminated and backed onto hardboard with wooden rulers fixed with a hinge so they can flip up and swivel to reveal the stamped out words, and also mimic the lifting of the skirt with a ruler (which was the experience that sparked the ruler theme, see Ruler Skirt) This dartafact was exhibited in three events in 2015 (Riverfront, Newport, Abacus, Cardiff and Redhouse, Merthyr). It was also used in a Welsh Government practitioner event led by Professor Renold, on creative ways to raise awareness of heathy relationships in schools with 80 teachers and educational practitioners across Wales. It features in the RulerHeART case study, in the Welsh Government endorsed resource, AGENDA: A young people's guide to making positive relationships matter.

Description The Shame Chain (Relationship Matters Project, Engagement phase of 4Ms project, Productive Margins) From the discussion of how some boys lift up girls skirts with rulers (see Ruler Skirt artefact entry for full overview), the girls wrote comments that sexually shamed girls on printed paper rulers. These paper rulers turned into paper chains to connect with how sexual violence shackles them. This process created their dartafact (Renold 2018, Libby et al. 2018), The Shame Chain.

Impact The Shame Chain (Relationship Matters Project, Engagement phase of 4Ms project, Productive Margins) From the discussion of how some boys lift up girls skirts with rulers (see Ruler Skirt for full overview), the girls wrote comments that sexually shamed girls on printed paper rulers. These paper rulers turned into paper chains to connect with how sexual violence shackles them. This process created their dartafact, The Shame Chain. IMPACT School Assembly: The SHAME CHAIN was used in the girls Healthy Relationships Assemblies (300 students, 20 teachers). Individual volunteers were invited to sound out the words and phrases 'that shame us' by reading the chain (and lifting up the rulers of the ruler skirt). This wasn't easy to achieve, as words were hidden on the inside of the chains, in personal hard-to-read handwriting - a process that mirrored how difficult it could be to talk about sexual harassment in school and which the girls made explicit in their presentation. Listening campaign: What else did the ruler slips do? At the end of the assembly, students were invited to participate in the 'Relationship Matters' activist campaign and share their thoughts in writing on 'why they think a real relationships education should be mandatory for all schools in wales'. Many students did comment and their words were shared in lobbying letters and the ensuing action. Students were also invited to comment on what they felt about the assembly, which brought forth a wide range of comments, from supporting the girls' campaign, disclosing specific experiences of sexual harassment, messages of apology and regret, and seeking advice on particular issues. Direct Political Action: The annotated ruler slips from the Welsh valleys met hundreds more ruler slips from Cardiff (as Professor Renold had opened up the 'Relationship Matters' activism project to two other schools). Over 1000 ruler-slips were generated in total. Three slips were selected and pasted to hang from a cut-out heart inside a red valentines card, which included a clear message listing the education ammendments they wanted to see in the Violence Against Women Bill. Every Assembly member in Wales received a Valentine Card. The card formed part of the GRAPHIC MOVES exhibition (see heART card activism)

Title Tagged HeART 
Description The Tagged hEART (Relationship Matters Project, Engagement phase of 4Ms project, Productive Margins) Not everything can be articulated through words. They can be felt corporeally, but are sometimes too painful to talk about. Some of the girls in The Relationship Matters project talked about events (such as girls being followed, or sexually propositioned to perform sexual acts for money or food) that left them word-less and choked, with 'lumps' in their throats, 'turned stomachs' or 'just numb'. They talked about keeping 'feelings in' that they wanted to express outwards. Attuning to their desire to both feel and express, Professor Renold spontaneously told them about an activity that took place the previous year with a group of academics and artists (see futurematters.org) experimenting with non-discursive ways of communicating and how Jên Angharad picked up the paper we had been given and rolled and dived on it, her movement marking the paper with crumples. Professor Renold invited the girls to express their feelings not through words but through marking the paper ruler slips (see entry for Shame Chain artefact on the significance of the ruler slips) as I read out some of the transcribed data from previous sessions. The girls crumpled, scrunched and teared the paper, saying,: It's like, it's better to get your anger out on something. It's like a sense of relief for me. Yeah how you react like your feelings rips them up and crumples them up until there's practically nothing left and you're left in pieces. And I reckon using paper is actually a good way of expressing that. So you're thinking about your feelings inside the paper? My feelings ARE the piece of paper . like crumpled up, torn up into little tiny pieces. We were left with piles of torn pieces of ruler-paper. Aware of how these pieces were carrying powerful affects we discuss what to do with them. Some girls wanted to hold on to them. Others wanted to bin them. One of the girls expressed her ambivalence, likening the act to 'chucking my feelings away'. One glance at the green recycling bin, and the girls talked about wanted to recycle them. In the space of 30 minutes, the girls 'recycled' and sutured their torn paper to create a powerful dartafact, which they later called, 'The Tagged Heart'. This was a heart that carried feelings of numbness, emptiness, anger and relief. The words: slag, fake, how much do you charge?, wolf whistling, rumour, grabbing your bum, stuck up, youth mother's a MILF, bitch, fatty, sket, beeping, look at her arse, ruler-like, fan out from the heart. Cracked clock faces decorated the outside, splitting time and signalling that not all feelings or 'broken hearts can be mended' with time. Significantly, not all the pieces found their way into the heart. As one of the girls said: 'they're the parts of the broken heart that never got mended'. These pieces went into the recycling bin.

Impact School Assembly: The making of the Tagged heART was shared in the girls Healthy Relationships Awareness Raising Assemblies (300 students, 20 teachers). The Tagged Heart was passed around the assembly hall, and, in awareness of how the tagged heart was created, students were asked to 'look after our feelings' because 'these are our feelings'. Indeed, contrary to one of the girls' initial fears that the heart might get 'trashed' (the rubbish bin surfacing again) the heart was passed from student to student, very carefully, remaining intact, touched by and touching over 300 students Exhibition: The Tagged HeART formed part of the Relationships Matter project's exhibitions (Riverfront Theatre, Newport; Abacus, Cardiff and Red House, Merthyr). Practitioner Workshops: The Tagged heART has since been used in many different practitioner workshops in Wales (approx. n=250 teachers/education practitioners) and at academic conferences in presentatios on arts-based methods (approx.. n=100). Resource: the making of the Tagged HeART features as the highly cited exemplar case study in the Welsh Government supported resource, AGENDA: A Young People's Guided to Making Positive Relationships Matter.

Title The Live Model Manual 
Description When you walk around your city and neighbourhood what makes it unique and different? How is your neighbourhood shaped by its residents - by their differing cultures, politics, income, work and leisure activities? How is your neighbourhood shaped by local and central government - by the rules and regulations that influence your life? Live Model an immersive performance in which the participants as actors consider how we experience regulation in the places where we live and work. What regulation do you come across in your neighbourhood? You drive on the left and not the right. You put your crisp packet in the bin. You have confidence that you won't get food poisoning in your local cafe. You know you have access to free healthcare and that your children must attend school. The Live Model took place in four locations in June and July 2017. The locations were Stapleton Road, Bristol; Knowle West, Bristol; Butetown, Cardiff; and Gurnos, Merthyr Tydfil. Invited participants (local residents, council workers, community workers, councillors) were taken on an immersive walk/performance guided by The Control Voice and The Reality Guide. The Live Model Manual guided the participants on their journey. They encountered abstract regulation made visible. The encountered The Live Model.

Live Model an immersive performance in which the participants as actors consider how we experience regulation in the places where we live and work. What regulation do you come across in your neighbourhood? You drive on the left and not the right. You put your crisp packet in the bin. You have confidence that you won't get food poisoning in your local cafe. You know you have access to free healthcare and that your children must attend school. The Live Model took place in four locations in June and July 2017. The locations were Stapleton Road, Bristol; Knowle West, Bristol; Butetown, Cardiff; and Gurnos, Merthyr Tydfil. Invited participants (local residents, council workers, community workers, councillors) were taken on an immersive walk/performance guided by The Control Voice and The Reality Guide. They encountered abstract regulation made visible. The encountered The Live Model.

Title Where the ocean meets the shore along the marginal way...Matthew Olden (2013) 
Description The Productive Marginals are a community of computer personalities with specific tasks to complete upon the Productive Margins archive.They are computer programs that inhabit the same space and time as user, working in the background as we go about our daily computerised tasks. A spread sheet program offers the same function of how a account clerk was once employed, to add up long rows of data, but what the program lacks in the work place is the subtle effects of humanity in a work situation. The non work social-interactivity between employees when a task is completed, is what makes the next number crunch bearable. A slight subtle movement in air can cause a butterfly effect in our acquisition of data and experience, a marginal thought explored. The Marginals are locked into total engagement, They are the agents of the archive, like a colony of ants they march forward and chomping through the archive, the rule based system they function under being their only motivation, but over time they come to produce a larger community. Like a busy New York tenement block, each Marginal brings a different story to the overall picture of the environment it inhabits. A communal commonality based on familiarity and circumstance rather than action,practice or interest. This marginal existence could be seen as a urban digitised office space community.The Marginals are the hum and buzz of a busy office, the diversity of the Marginals draw the users attention to non-specific work/non work tasks away from the solo input node of the modern work station, a modern day Hawthorn effect. A previous work of mine, Making Friends And Enemies, investigated the production of a community of computer agents dealing with the cross over of machine/human consciousness, here the characters became the artist, and the artist became the characters, anticipating the coming of post humanity where the boundary between us and our agents is dissolved. With the Productive Marginals the boundaries between the archive and it agents become blurred, aspects of the archive talk to other aspects of the archive and refers to aspects of itself rather than a external reality, like the library in the book "The Name Of The Rose" by Umberto Eco, "books always speak of other books, and every story tells a story that has already been told,", in our case the Marginals offer up this information feedback up to the user, in an hope to offer insight to how the project see's itself. The Marginals could be seen as the archives unconsciousness, producing a host of signs and signals in the same way we dream,the Marginals themselves being based on archetypal artists and philosophies that deal with aspects of divining information. Like an oracle looking into cloudy water the user can contemplate the information space and architecture that the archives agents create. Key Marginal is a text search engine who analyses documents for keywords, getting audibly more excited as he matches his search criteria. Sentimental Marginal is a computer program who reads pdf-documents and assigns a positive or negative analysis upon them, then acts accordingly. Markov Marginal performs a Markov chain probability analysis on text files to develop surrealist poetry. Marginal Voices are a selection of synthesised voices of famous personalties, they love to practice their speak patterns so each takes turns reading the minutes of meetings, each taking a real life persons part. The Marginal Prophet looks towards AI chat-bots to answer questions posed by the Productive Margins research. Kurt Twitters translates research papers into sound poetry. Key Marginal Canvaser makes exploratory cinema with footage suggested by keyword searches. Marginal Value analysis text documents and produces musique concrete from statistical information. Muggletonian Marginal has a strong opposition to philosophical reason and comments upon the validity of research. Interzone Marginal creates an archive fueled Dreamachine to conjure up images to access the third eye. ***************************************** mar·gin·al adj. 1. Of, relating to, located at, or constituting a margin, a border, or an edge: the marginal strip of beach; a marginal issue that had no bearing on the election results. 2. Being adjacent geographically: states marginal to Canada. 3. Written or printed in the margin of a book: marginal notes. 4. Barely within a lower standard or limit of quality: marginal writing ability; eked out a marginal existence. 5. Economics a. Having to do with enterprises that produce goods or are capable of producing goods at a rate that barely covers production costs. b. Relating to commodities thus manufactured and sold. 6. Psychology Relating to or located at the fringe of consciousness. n. One that is considered to be at a lower or outer limit, as of social acceptability: "is fascinated by marginals, by people who live on the edge of society" (Dan Yakir).

Impact Cited in the following way as "Promising Practice" AGENDA: A young people's guide to making positive relationships matter AGENDA comes from the Latin - "to get things done". It is Wales' first national guidance for young people on how they can safely and creatively make positive relationships matter. Its aim is to help young people exercise their rights, be inspired by the stories of others and support each other in getting started to share and change what matters to them. Created with a diverse group of 12 young people, AGENDA has been designed so that young people can explore different things at their own pace. It is based on key principle six of the Whole Education guide, which calls for 'active participation of children and young people'.40 Rather than bombarding young people with facts, definitions and statistics, AGENDA hopes to connect young people to the different ways in which other young people in Wales and around the world are raising awareness of how gender-based and sexual violence impact upon their lives and the lives of others.

Description Creative Activism informing and influencing the educational measures of the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Act (2015)
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Participation in a national consultation
Impact I Facilitated three 'Making Relationship Matter Lunch Clubs' in 3 schools (one school I worked with in depth, with additional support from ESRC/AHRC Productive Margins)  The schools delivered school assemblies on everyday sexism and sexual harassment and a listening campaign which invited students to complete the sentence, I need a healthy relationship education because highlighting the reasons why they feel a change to the bill is important. Over 1000 comments were collected.  With support from Citizens Cymru, 40 young people created individual Valentine's cards for all 60 assembly members. Each card had a handwritten comment from a student collected as part of listening activities (above) and contained the message: 'This valentine's card may be past its sell by date, but it's not too late to make healthy relationships education compulsory for all children in Wales', reiterating the need for an amendment to the Bill. The cards were also signed with a kiss to connect to the 'red my lips campaign' - a worldwide campaign to raise awareness of sexual assault and included the policy poem above.  Testimonial by Jocelyn Davies, Assembly Member: "Professor Renold's research helped to establish a consensus among the members of the CPG that a comprehensive, whole-school and statutory approach to educating children and young people about healthy relationships is essential. When the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act was introduced, the lack of the promised educational provisions was a disappointment. The CPG's campaign to amend the Bill to introduce educational provisions was heavily informed by the evidence provided by Professor Renold's research. It was cited many times during speeches given in the Senedd, correspondence with the Minister, articles and press releases.  The collaboration successfully resulted in a promise from the Welsh Government that a whole-school, statutory approach to healthy relationships education would be introduced to schools in Wales. A Good Practice Guide was recently distributed to schools as a result.  The Valentine's Day Card campaign action organised by Professor Renold was an innovative and creative way to engage Assembly Members in the campaign, which successfully raised awareness and influenced opinion.  The campaign to amend the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act resulted in a promise from the Minister for Public Services, Leighton Andrews AM, that a whole-school, statutory approach to healthy relationships education would be introduced to Welsh schools. This started with the recent publication of a Good Practice guide, which was distributed to schools and includes the work Professor Renold has done with young people in Merthyr as a case study.  The results would not have been achieved without the collaboration with Professor Renold.  The research she spearheaded was crucial in ensuring that children and young people's voices were heard by the Cross Party Group and that their experiences informed our discussions. It was the key piece of evidence drawn on to support the campaign to introduce healthy relationships education to the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act.  The impact of the research was then reinforced by the activism organised by Professor Renold, like the Valentine's Day Card action, which raised awareness and helped to strengthen the campaign among Assembly Members."

Description Evidence to Education Committee inquiry into Alternative Provision
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact Written evidence submitted by Manchester Metropolitan University to Education Committee inquiry into Alternative Provision, Nov 2017 The evidence was based on Ivinson's long engagement with children and young people living in areas of high poverty and de-industrialisation, such as the south Wales ex mining communities where Ivinson has undertaken long term ethnographic and arts-based work funded, in part, by Productive Margins. About this submission This is a submission of evidence based on the following senior academic researchers from the Education & Social Research Institute (ESRI) at Manchester Metropolitan University: • Professor Gabrielle Ivinson, Professor of Education and Community, Manchester Metropolitan University. Prof Ivinson has a background in developmental psychology and works with artists to co-produce art forms and artefacts to enable young people to communicate with persons in authority by drawing on the affective power of art to move. Prof Ivinson has research interest in why children and young people living in poverty are still having difficulties achieving in school, and how institutions can meet the education needs of marginalised young people, providing research evidence to poverty commissions throughout the UK. Example of written evidence: When young people have had multiple setbacks e.g. very complex family structures, experience of adults who have not been supportive, and sometimes have witnessed events that are extremely distressing, normal models of the developmental route, or common sense understanding of development routes, will not apply. New, more comprehensive models are required. 1.1.2 The Education Committee needs to consider setting quality parameters in alternative provision within the range and level of expertise required to support young people and children who often have multiple and complex educational needs, rather than simply on the academic attainment/quality of academic delivery. 1.1.3 When gauging quality in alternative provision one is starting from a point of failure - failure of mainstream educational provision. Alternative provision is for young people who have already been failed by mainstream educational provision. Defining the parameters of quality of provision means you have to understand what is meant by 'quality' in the context of alternative provision - the provision is 'alternative' for a reason. 1.1.4 Young people in alternative provision have manifest problems that mainstream schools have found too difficult to manage and contain - trauma, abuse, mental wellbeing, chaotic or disruptive home situations. Due to a shortage of resources and increasingly a shortage of expertise in primary schools many children are not been diagnosed early and are not receiving the support that would prevent their difficulties from escalating and becoming manifest as disruptive behaviour. Such early diagnosis and support would minimise the need for placement within alternative provision down the line. Follow on: I received a standard rely Thank you for your written submission to the House of Commons Education Committee inquiry on Alternative provision. We will be in touch if we have any further questions. Then I was asked to speak to two different groups at the DfE on Dec 1st 2017. I went to Sanctuary House, London. One group at the DfE - wanted to hear about Working with Disturbed Young People via Art - this relates to my work in a PRU as part of Peter Hick's Youth Justice SEND project and arts based methods developed as part of Productive Margins. I wrote a paper for them and they said it was excellent - so invited me to talk to their manager and a group working on how to improve education for young in danger of being criminalised. The paper was well received. The work is now feeding into the Governmnet review of Alternative education provision. The SEND final report will recommend a new category of need for vulnerable children and young people and will point to what kinds of flexible pedagogic approaches are required to help vulnerable young people to learn. We have created a video for teachers to help re-imagine challenging behaviour and explain the need to recognise vulnerability as produced by place, the history of place, de-industrialisation and poverty. In effect, it argues that some young people, due to where they are born geographically, carry the burden of de-industrialisation, for which we need to be socially responsible This fits in with our art works and campaigns that challenge pathologising representations of young people living on some housing estates and neighbourhoods in the wider Productive Margins project. It relates also to Prof Emma Renold campaigns with the Welsh Government. Ivinson is now bringing these insights to the English school context, as she moved from Cardiff, Wales to Manchester, England within the five years of the Productive Margin's time band. Ivinson has also won an impact grant from Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to connect Dr Geoff Bright's (MMU) work in ex mining towns in the north of England with the ex-mining valley towns in south Wales. At six co-produced events, films made about living in coalfield communities will be shared and we will document the effects of this sharing. We are hoping that the sharing, while it will be a sharing of grief and loss, will enable people to feel less isolated. Once again, we rely on the power of art to move. The sharing will be across geographical locations in England and Wales and will be intergenational. Some of the films were co-produced with young people (Ivinson/Renold) and some with adults (Bright). (See separate entry on new grants f

Impact In 2016 I was invited to become one of three academics in Wales to join the Welsh Government VAWDASV Advisory Steering Group, specifically in relation to my expertise in Sex and Relationships Education and VAWDASV in relation to children and young people's peer cultures (e.g. coercion and control in young relationships, and sexual harassment more widely in public places). This has involved submitting and discussing research evidence, but the single most important outcome so far has been the development of a children and young people's sub-grooup committee (identified by myself and supported by NSPCC Cymru) which was accepted and now meets monthly. The aim of this group is to: To ensure a focus on prevention, protection and support of children and young people in ending all manifestations of gender based violence, domestic abuse and sexual violence Objectives To work towards ensuring: · children and young people's distinct issues inform the work of the VAWDASV AG and delivery of the legislation · the experiences and views of children and young people are central to the work of the VAWDASV MAG · research and evidence informs VAWDASV policy and legislative developments in Wales · specialist support services are available to c&yp who have experienced gender based violence, domestic abuse and sexual violence

Title SAGE Video Research Methods master series on "Participatory Research: Creative Methods". 
Description Arts-Based Methodologies and Practices A series of twelve arts based workshops - named 'Found Sounds and Street Beats', 'Mashing Up the Land', and 'Projection Project' - were designed by the research team (Ivinson, Renold, Elliott and Thomas) with artists; sound artist, Rowan Talbot, visual artist, Seth Oliver, and filmmaking artist, Heloise Godfrey-Talbot, and supported by youth workers, G. Maddison, and teachers, A Griffiths. The workshops were offered to young people in a local youth centre and a school (February-May 2015). Through working with artists, young people found new ways to express and reflect on their experiences of growing up in their town (an ex coal mining community). The workshops also facilitated the creation of a new film - 'Graphic Moves' - featuring some artistic outputs (drawings/paintings, sculptures, visual projections, soundscapes, poems, and narrative accounts) created in the workshops. They touch on deep feelings of belonging and rootedness as well as difficult and challenging topics, such as feeling unsafe. This artwork has been inspired by geographic information system (GIS) mapping technology as well as responses to negative media portrayals of M ( name removed for anonymity) (e.g. TV programme 'Skint'). The artworks speak back to pathologising representations of M and celebrate young people's relationship with their place, its people, and its landscape. Three major public exhibitions were organised and enabled difficult, challenging and painful issues - together with joyous celebrations of place - to be communicated through the affective power of art to move. The exhibitions sparked a great deal of community, social media, and public debate that is still reverberating and generating interest and impact. In addition, two original dance pieces were created/performed for two exhibitions. The exhibitions were documented by a professional photographer and a filmmaker using drone cameras to capture the moving images of a choreographer/dancer who responded to artworks and the reactions of the public through body movements. The footage was made into a short 2 minute film called 'Body Swings'.

Description Creative Margins: Building capacity to widen participation in arts spaces and practices 
Organisation Arts Council England
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution Creative Margins: Building capacity to widen participation in arts spaces and practices A new project aims to end the inequality in arts participation in England and Wales by helping artists and organisations engage marginalised groups. The Creative Margins network, funded by AHRC and supported by the Arts Council England, will meet five times in locations across England and Wales throughout 2018. Meetings will focus on topics including enterprise in the arts, trust, evaluation, and the use of space. Organisations including Tate, National Museum Wales, Common Wealth Theatre and the UK Federation for Detached Youth are all official project partners and meeting hosts, and part of the funding will be used for bursaries to enable local artists to attend. The network is run by Manchester Metropolitan University's Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and will provide an opportunity for academics to develop a more complex understanding of marginalisation, and as the basis for further research. It builds on Along with the network meetings organised with partners mentioned above, this project builds on Ivinson's work in ex-mining communities on south Wales, where she works with a range of artists to co-produce artworks with extremely marginalised young people (ESRC/AHRC Productive Margins project in the Connected Communities Programme http://www.productivemargins.ac.uk/projects/mapping-making-mobilising/ And Ivinson's work as Chair of the British Education Research Associations' Commission on Poverty and Policy Advocacy https://www.bera.ac.uk/project/bera-research-commissions/poverty-and-policy-advocacy Extract from press release Creative Margins: Building capacity to widen participation in arts spaces and practices Earlier research by the Common Cause Foundation and Manchester Museum concluded that subtle changes to how arts organisations display their work or request donations could influence how welcoming they appear. "There are currently a narrow range of tools for 'measuring' impact," explained Gabrielle Ivinson, lead researcher on the project. "It would be great to discover new potential models of interaction, but our aim is to expose current conflicts and find small moves that arts organisations could make to make their arts organisation a little less intimidating." She continued: "When it is complete, the project will address the need to prepare the future workforce, by suggesting how groups who do not usually consider employment in the arts sectors may be supported to consider future careers in the arts and as entrepreneurs creating a more democratic, participatory society. "The project is important not just for academics and arts organisations - it will help policy-makers, governments at local, regional, devolved and national levels, and most importantly individuals who are at risk." Arts employees from publicly funded theatres, museums, galleries and art centres have revealed considerable concern about the uneven social participation in the Arts. As part of the £24,203 project, arts employees will come together with academics and practitioners from the fields of community and youth work to critically debate issues such as participation, democracy, enterprise, trust, street work and festivals. The network will meet in a series of BarCamp meetings throughout the year in Manchester, London, Bradford, Brighton and Cardiff. https://www.artsprofessional.co.uk/news/creative-network-seeks-tackle-marginalisation-arts Background Evidence that involvement in the Arts and arts-based activities can play a positive role in ameliorating these risks has accrued over the past 15 years (RSPH, 2013; Arts Council, 2014; Culture White Paper, 2016). While enormous strides have been taken towards making arts institutions accessible and welcoming to a range of maginalised groups (Brown and Higashi, 2015; Cook, 2009; Culture White Paper, 2016, p. 15; Jermyn, 2004; Kester, 2013; Sandell & Nightingale, 2012) there remain considerable challenges in widening access to some marginalised young people and adults (Edmunds, 2008; Hammonds & Bhandal, 2011; Ivinson 2012; Robinson and Gillies, 2012; Pahl, on-going). Our meetings led us to ask the question, 'Why, given that participation in Arts has come to be framed increasingly within inclusion agendas, do these often play out in practice, unintentionally, in exclusionary ways?' Across the consultations, a further set of Key Questions emerged that will guide the critical debates in the BarCamp workshops: • What are the points of dissonance and convergence around understandings of arts-based participation and democracy held by Arts organisations, artists, community-based facilitators/activists, youth workers and those who teach on FE creative arts courses? • How do arts-based practices link to the development of wider enterprise, the soft skills required for entrepreneurship and how are these recognised/accredited? • How do artists, practitioners in arts Institutions, youth and community workers negotiate the short-termism of funding in relation to the time frames needed to build trust? • How can the impact and evaluation agendas be reconciled with the needs of marginal groups? • What is understood as community cohesion and how do divergent practices such as festivals and youth workers' street work contribute? We propose the model of a BarCamp to structure the exchange spaces because we recognise the need to enable participants from very different disciplines and institutions to interact rather than only listen to presentations. Many of the participants involved in the consultations are part of wider programmes aimed at designing projects that actively work to include marginalised groups in civic society such as: the AHRC Connected Communities Programme (Angharad, Byrne, Ivinson). Our involvement in these programmes as community artists, and academics who work with artists, has led us to value co-production and partnership working and to recognise the importance of understanding the living knowledge, values and aesthetics of marginalised groups in non-judgemental ways (Facer and Enright, 2016). To allow for a multiplicity of perspectives the BarCamps will be designed to include processes of making, attuning, listening and debating. This is critical if we are to work together in meaner, keener times in ways that enable critical engagement with issues such as democracy and access to the Arts. Aim The aim is to share knowledge across the fields and disciplines of Art and youth/community and to critically debate how to widen participation in the Arts to address social inequality. Objectives 1. To create a network of local and cross national connections between groups and disciplines such as; Arts organisations, artists, community-based facilitators/activists, youth workers and academics who teach creative arts courses, to share knowledge and explore differences; 2. To craft 5 BarCamps as non-elitist exchange spaces (through processes of making, attuning, listening and debating) to enable boundary crossing between disciplines; 3. To record and share the emerging debates and map divergent knowledge, expertise and knowhow between fields and disciplines through mind-maps, diagrams, notes and photographs that will be lodged on a web-space modelled on the Sense Lab (see details below); 4. To disseminate key findings to stakeholders through a Futures Planning Meeting, a web space, a summary report and academic papers, and create principles to design a research project to put the knowledge gained in the BarCamps into practice. Events: In January 2018 we met to design the structure of the BarCamp exchange spaces and construct lists of invitees by region to ensure a balance of Arts and youth/community participants. The five BarCamps will take place between May 2018 and March 2018. BarCamp1: Key Theme - Exploring Divergent Views of Arts-based Participation Manchester, 42nd Street Youth Centre hosted by Julie McCarthy, Horsfall & Jo Lane of Odd Arts and organised by Early Career Researchers Lara Trafi-Pratts and Harriet Rowley, Manchester Metropolitan University and Dr Anna Bull University of Portsmouth BarCamp2: Key Theme - Exploring Divergent Views of Enterprise in the Arts London, Tate Gallery hosted by Nicky Simm & Mark Miller of Circuit, academic lead Yvonne Robinson LSBU, Early Career Researcher Frances Howard, University of Nottingham BarCamp3: Key Theme - Exploring Time and Trust in Art-Based Practices Cardiff, The National Museum of Wales, hosted by R.

Collaborator Contribution The Arts Council England's letter of support included the following" 'We therefore recognise the value of creating a network to share knowledge and methods across disciplines to better understand how to enable marginalised groups to benefit from arts facilities and practices. We value the opportunity to participate in the initial planning meeting and the Manchester based BarCamp. We will host the Next Steps Planning Meeting at our headquarters, The Hive in Manchester and look forward to contributing to discussions about further research and dissemination.'

PI Contribution Manchester Metropolitan University awarded an impact accelerator grant to Professor Gabrielle Ivinson and Dr Geoff Bright in 2018 to enable partnerships between i) six industrialised coalfield communities in the north of England and south Wales ex-mining valleys ii) community partners - Unite Community and the Co-operative College iii) Manchester Metropolitan University and Cardiff University
Collaborator Contribution The impact accelerator grant will bring develop partnership connections afforded by successive tranches of ESRC/ARHC Connected Communities funding for community events and engagement across geographical areas in the UK where coalfield de-industrialisation is acute: the south Wales coalfields and English coalfields. It builds a three-way partnership between: 1) Professor Gabrielle Ivinson's (Metropolitan University) longitudinal work in the south Wales valley communities, 'Young People and Place' (2008-11), 'Mapping, Making and Moving in Merthyr (2013-2015)', and Productive Margins (2013-2018). The full team in Wales includes Professor Emma Renold, Dr Eva Elliott and Ellie Byrne (Cardiff University). 2) Dr Geoff Bright's (Manchester Metropolitan University) recent projects Working with Social Haunting: Past and Present Making in Two "Communities of Value"(2015 - 2016 ; Opening the Unclosed Space: Multiplying Ghost Labs (2016) and Song Lines to Impact and Legacy: Creating Living Knowledge through Working with Social Haunting (2017-2018), in north England. 3) Community partners - Unite Community and the Co-operative College Sharing events Both Ivinson and Bright work with artists to co-produce art forms and artefacts to enable young people (Ivinson) and marginalised adults (Bright) to communicate with authority by drawing on the affective power of art. We have been using creative methodologies to understand affective circuits of communication, bonds of solidarity and intergenerational knowledge transmissions that relate to the historical specificity of multiply impoverished coalfield communities. Our series of high quality and successful ESRC/AHRC projects has already had impact extending as far as Slovenia, Hungary, Malawi and the United States via interactive community radio (see socialhaunting.com/radio), but receipt of an IGF Flexible Award would allow us to respond to a domestic wellbeing agenda that has intensified since our most recent projects commenced. This agenda has been developing UK wide with an acknowledgement of the requirement for formal 'wellbeing' duties. The Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2016, and all party Creative Health Report (2017) compel public bodies to consider wellbeing in all of their actions. In Wales this includes an annual 'wellbeing assessment'. We know from our various community partners that there is an appetite for new tools to help communities and public authorities negotiate (rather than diagnose) complex and, sometimes, dissenting wellbeing needs. Our proposed events provide an innovative, creative, non-threatening and community self-determined route to engagement that will prove invaluable in registering the buried hurts and of coalfield communities and informing support needs. The events will involve film showings in six venues (see below). The film artefacts that will be shared in the events are: • A 15 minute selection from the song/image cycle "Giving up the Ghosts" - a set of contemporary 'video ballads' written and recorded by folk musicians, Ribbon Road (Bright) • A 15 minute selection from the films "Light Moves", "Graphic Moves" and "Life Support" (Ivinson et al. see other entries) Events will be hosted during late summer and early autumn 2018 as follows: England • Rochdale Pioneers Museum, Rochdale, Greater Manchester (supported by the Co-operative College) • East Durham Arts Network, Seaham, County Durham • South Yorkshire Branch, Unite Community, Sheffield (supported by Unite Community) Wales • Red House - Merthyr Tydfil • Llanhilleth Miner's Institute - Llanhilleth • U3A group in Blaenau Gwen - Ebbw Vale This work will have direct relevance as follows • For staff and activist members of our established 'social haunting' community partners, Unite Community and the Co-op College. Both have had formal AHRC/ESRC "Community Co-Investigator" roles in Bright's projects, are key players in civil society, and are keen to develop their educational and organisational community policies and practices in response to questions well-being in de-industrialised areas in the aftermath of Brexit. Unite Community, as the community facing structure of Britain's largest trade union is keen to draw on our approach as it shifts campaigning and education towards community well being issues around coalfield housing. Unite will make available to our project their digital networking capacities reaching activists and members in both geographical areas of our project, and nationally (eg UNITElive; Unite Young Members Buzzfeed; Union News; Unite for Our society). • For statutory agencies in coalfield communities and other de-industrialised areas who are developing tools for wellbeing assessment of their services and functions in accordance with statutory requirements • For third sector organisations in coalfield communities and other de-industrialised areas who wish to develop tools for wellbeing assessment of their services and functions in accordance with best practice aspirations • For local community participants of all ages in the areas covered, the project will be an opportunity to ensure their voices are heard and recognised; to explore arts-based activities which offer them alternative ways of expressing their stories; to make further connections within and beyond their communities through exploring topics which are often not discussed; and to explore what this means for the collective history, and future, of their communities. • As outlined below, academic, social and conceptual impacts will be linked into the growing body of materials gathered together within relevant websites (socialhaunting.com) and networks (Creative Margins' (2018-2019) AHRC network (AH/R006563/1) (PI G Ivinson) https://wcstudiesassociation.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/social-haunting/ https://www.productivemargins.ac.uk/projects/mapping-making-mobilising/

Title StoryCreator app 
Description The Tangible Memories app allows you to tell stories that are meaningful to you and your loved ones, and listen back to them in easy and accessible ways. It has been designed particularly with older people and their carers and families in mind, but can be used by anyone. You can create pages that combine a photo, text and an audio recording. These can be viewed within the app or printed out. When printed, the audio recording is represented by a beautiful shell illustration. The scan function within the app recognizes the shell on each printed page and, as if by magic, plays back your audio. As well as printing out PDF pages, the shells can be printed onto other things such as cushions or lap blankets. Music is well known to be therapeutic for dementia sufferers and can be a powerful way to access memories. We have also found that people with dementia often enjoy the feel of tactile fabrics. You can use the app to link a piece of music to a shell. When that shell is printed out (this could be onto a range of materials) you can use the scan function to play back that piece of music. This enables people to create blankets and objects to touch and feel that contain play lists that are meaningful to them. - A simple design that allows you to make an audio recording, add a photo and a short quote - A function that allows you to swipe through pages you have created as an e-book within the app and play back your audio on each page - An export option, which allows you to email a PDF of each page to share with others or print out - A 'scan' function that, using image recognition, allows you to play back audio recordings from your printed pages by framing the shell illustrations within the viewfinder - Options to record audio within the app or use tracks from your iTunes library - Options to take photos through the app or add them from your photo library - As well as printing out PDF pages, the shells can be printed onto other things such as cushions or lap blankets. - iTunes file sharing, enabling the user to copy their created book from the iPad to their computer as a backup option. Copied books can also be imported onto another iPad running the Tangible Memories app. - Handy hints based on our research and experience of working with older people in care homes 
Type Of Technology Webtool/Application 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The app is already being used in a variety of care homes across Bristol. Our partners Alive! are working with us to train staff to use the app across the South west and South east. Since June 2015 we have seen 1352 downloads of the app from across the globe.

Primary Audience Professional Practitioners
Results and Impact Nov 2106 saw the national launch of the co-produced AGENDA: A young people's guide for making positive relationship matter. At this event, AGENDA training and workshops were delivered to young people to be trained as agenda ambassadors (n=40 from 7 schools and youth groups) and teachers (n=7). These included the youth group who participated in Graphic Moves (4Ms, Productive Margins) and the whole event was co-hosted with professor Renold and Libby, member of the Relationships Matter project.

Every conference participant (n=120) received their own 'jar' full of comments from young people on gender and sexual injustice and violence in schools. This experiential activity is in the Agenda resource. These jars have subsequently been used in future AGENDA training workshops (see entry on Spectrum training; All Wales School Liaison training; SRE workshops) and their messages also featured in the Welsh Government's SRE expert panel recommendations report (renold and mcgeeney 2017)

The agenda ambassadors have subsequently received outreach to local schools, including Mountatin Ash Comprehensive, Tonyrefail, Plasmawr, Tonypandy (see Agenda conference 2017 entry). For media of the event, see ITV Wales Agenda conference coverage entry.

Results and Impact Most clearly represented in blog post - impact included follow up with furthers schools for outreach work (see WEN Wales entry in collaboration) and messages from young people were included in the report and recommendations for future of SRE in Wales. The video from the day was also made by and played by Professor Renold at the United Nations (see recognition entry) to showcase how Wales is advancing SRE in Wales by listening to young people and creating events that enable those with decision making powers head and act upon their voices. Generating more energy than the blazing July sun, over 70 young people (age 13-18) streamed in to the Educating Agenda conference, in Cardiff University last week. They came to participate, share, reflect and build the event into a powerful and inspiring call to arms. Joining them in the building, and in purpose, were some of the teachers and heads of department who continue to give their time and support to young people speaking out in their schools and communities. Representatives from a range of charities and statutory organisations profiled the services they are able to offer young people across an array of colourful and engaging stalls, contributing to the carnival-esque feel of the event. This was not a typical conference, more of a celebration of the many achievements of all involved. It was also about bringing together these young people who are working tirelessly and bravely to show that, far from alone, they are part of a bigger movement with a shared collective aim: improving the provision of sex and relationships education for everyone. And so, it was also a strategic meeting, looking to the future, building onwards, with Agenda.

Professor Emma Renold opened the conference, welcoming back the young people and practitioners who co-produced the Agenda resource and attended its launch in Cardiff bay last year.

Reflecting on this amazing journey so far, which clearly inspired many of the performances we were to enjoy that day, Emma highlighted the many directions Agenda has moved in. Taking the resource across Wales, physically, digitally and emotionally. From the Welsh Assembly, to police and teacher training, and the Welsh Baccalaureate conference, across schools town and cities, it was clear much has been achieved. We saw how Agenda has become a living archive in motion, amplifying the creations and messages of all the young people involved in its creation, many of whom were gathered in the room. We saw Agenda gaining momentum through its appropriation and adaptation in each new encounter and forging onwards as a powerful vehicle for change, as we were about to see.

'Children's champion for Wales', commissioner Sally Holland drew our attention to Agenda's value as a human rights based approach, commending the work of everyone involved. The children's commissioner applauded Wales' brilliant young people who, using Agenda as a launch pad, are demanding, better sex and relationships education in powerful and creative ways. Cabinet secretary for Education Kirsty Williams echoed these sentiments describing Agenda as a platform for discussing complex issues, helping teachers to provide the sex and relationships education young people deserve.

Classrooms, the cabinet minister said, have to be free of intolerance and, she added, sex and relationships education must be inclusive, comprehensive and delivered by trained experts. The talk concluded with messages from primary school pupils, sent to Kirsty Williams via a fantastic Pride-inspired, rainbow piñata, calling for gender neutral toilets in schools, more teacher training, awareness raising and protests.

Two outstanding performances followed featuring pupils from Ysgol Gyfun Plasmawr and Mountain Ash comprehensive schools. Siriol Burford introduced these Agenda ambassadors, firstly Plasmawr performing a new drama production 'Hidden' that highlights the potentially unseen harm of homophobic bullying. A powerful representation of the insidious effects of 'harmless banter', exploring the impact of phrases such as 'that's so gay' from the perspective of a non-heterosexual pupil, overhearing them. #WAM (We Are More) maintained the high standard delivering their own dramatization of the kinds of everyday sexism they experience. Their rallying call 'WAM: We Are More' was the response to derogatory marks about skirt length, make up and body shaming. Mountain Ash students also shared a video of their activism and its path through their school and beyond, out in to communities in Cardiff, at the International Women's day event and onwards to Paris for the European Children's Rights summit!

Rhian Bowen-Davies, National Adviser for Violence against Women, other forms of Gender-Based Violence, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence emphasized the need to listen to young people in designing and delivering the necessary preventative work to advance gender equity and address all forms of gender-related and sexual violence via a whole school approach.

Young people from Tonypandy community college's 'Outlook' group performed their drama exploring, among other things, sexting. Introducing them, their teacher emphasized that these young people had created the characters and the script themselves, without assistance. All of the powerful messages were their own and they made a strong case for the importance of inclusive and student-led sex and relationships education.

Tonyrefail comprehensive school students brought a musical flavour to close this first section of the day. Firstly, with backing from Mountain Ash Comprehensive school's male voice choir, Charlie (age 13) performed her own song 'Face to Face', inspired by Agenda. It's a beautiful song about respect, ambivalence and the challenges of growing up. With barely a moment to dab our moistening eyes Tonyrefail introduced the GCSE art project of one of their most talented students, Lauren. Set to the Macklemore track 'Same Love' a short film chronicled the impact of contemporary society on understandings of LGBTQI identities, from media representations to the uncertainty of the current political climate. Punctuated by the removal of rainbow coloured tissue paper from a skull inscribed with all of the intersecting identities that can sometimes become lost when we think of people only in terms of their sexualities. It was both sobering and uplifting to be invited to view these issues from this young person's perspective, seeing what they see in the world around them. For real emotional impact when delivering your message, think creatively.

After a short break young people from Ysgol Gyfun Plasmawr led students from all of the schools through the Agenda starter activities ('the runway of change', 'stop/start plates' and 'what jars you'), using them as a kicking off point for

developing a pledge of the top five key things that need to change in their schools.

These pledges were videoed, filtered through a 'glitch app' which distorts images to obscure participants identities. And these pledges were made to be gifted back to the schools the students originated from, glitch-activism in action. This industriousness filled the hall with conversations between schools about the strengths and weaknesses of their own current provision. Aptly, while this was going on, teachers and professionals were enjoying presentations in another part of the building. Emma shared details from the AGENDA case studies and accompanying Welsh Baccaluerate resources on Feminist Activism, Healthy Relationships; LGBT Rights; Selfie Culture; Digital Gaming and more. Inspiring feminist teacher Hanna Retallack made the journey from London to share about her experiences as a feminist teacher and facilitator of feminist groups, sharing ideas and strategies with professionals in Wales. The Spectrum Hafan Project also helped to outline positive moves and whole school approaches that all schools could make to get conversations started.

During the lunch break most of us migrated to the grounds to sit in the sun, continue conversations and share thoughts and reflections on the day so far. With sun soaked backs lulling us all gently towards inertia we made our way back indoors. The glitch pledges were screened at the front of the hall and the main themes of better staff training and listening to student voice came across clearly from all groups.

Minutes after, Jên Angharad (Voices in Art) was re-energising everyone and waking us all up, working with some of the thoughts and feelings of the day to create a series of movements. Capturing the spirit of the day Jen took her cues from the young people, moving with their feelings. For me, this was what the conference was about, it really was their day. A day that united the representatives from national charities, Government, academia, educators, county councils and youth groups, through the awe-inspiring enthusiasm, determination and creativity of the young people whom their work affects.

The talent, passion, commitment and strength of all the young people who came together on July 5th outshone the ferocity of the midsummer sun, they are our brightest stars. Captured in image, movement and song, here are some of the day's best bits: https://vimeo.com/224546331

Incredibly effective for communicating the practices of AGENDA through workshops and stand (over 200 people, with overall footfall of 2017 in Swansea alone).

Enabling and empowering over 50 young people to share their AGENDA inspired activities on a national stage. Connecting schools and group in the valleys with city schools and youth groups. This event led to collaboration with WEN Wales to support and fund further outreach work so that schools can received AGENDA training (see collaborations entry)

Results and Impact Light Moves is a short film that was co-produced with young people at a Youth Facility in a south Wales, ex mining community. The film came out of participatory engagement with the youth facility over many months. It drew on work with primary school children taking part in the Big Dance, led by choreographer Jen Angharad with over 400 school children, from four primary schools in south Wales ex-mining valleys. The girls from the youth facility learned their film making skills at this event. We then went on to work with one of the participating primary schools in a second phase. Led by choreographer Jen Angharad, 30 children created a dance that was stimulated by art works created by the young people from the Youth Facility with artist Seth Oliver, filmmaker Heloise Godfrey Talbot and sound artist Rowan Talbot. The girls from the youth facility created a story board for the film's narrative structure and worked with choreographer Jen Angharad to select and edit dance sections from the primary school children's improvised dance. The film also includes sections from the local landscape celebrating the beauty of the place and depicting inter generational stories and images of life growing up there. The film is an uplifting, joyful rendering of the close relationships between the history of place, the changing landscape, movement and experiences of growing up that produce a strong affective charge, demonstrating the power of art to move. The film has been shown in a range of events, festivals, venues and international conferences. The girls told their school art teacher about their film making activity and when he saw the film, the teacher incorporated it as a piece of stimulus material for the GCSE art assessment project. From this, the girls went on to create other artifacts. Some of these artefacts featured in the next film we co-produced called Graphic Moves, see separate entry. The film and the artefacts have been part of three local festivals, (also see separate entries). The film was premiered at the AHRC Connected Communities Festival, Cardiff 1-2 July 2014. Further showings were,
Motopoint Exhibition, Cardiff, Tuesday 1st July 11.30 and 15.30 and Pierhead Exhibition, Wednesday 2nd June 12.15, 13.55 and 15.35. The film has featured on a number of post graduate training courses to demonstrate arts-based co-production, in a range of universities including the University of Aberdeen and Sheffield University. The film was featured in a commissioned methods resources for the Sage Methodspace, Creative Methods for the Sage on-line methods resources website in 2015. The Sage team created a video in which Emma Renold and Gabrielle Ivinsin describe how the Product Margins, Cardiff (Ivinson was at Aberdeen University and then at Manchester Metropolitan University) team researching with young people in south Wales ex mining valleys used creative methods to enable them to express imaginative and creative representations to counteract negative media images of the stigmatised town where they are growing up. Renold and Ivinson describe how artefacts and films co-created by young people with artists counteract the negative images of the place and how art works allow sensitive issues such as sexual violence to be aired in ways that protect the young people and allow publics to engage with difficult issues about poverty. The video resources were filmed in the Riverfront Exhibition Centre where our young artists' exhibited their work.

Results and Impact Working with the Steering Group, we organised an Inspiring Muslim Women event at the University of Bristol on 23rd September 2014, which featured addresses from three Muslim women activists on their experiences of being active in various public and political domains. They were Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, who spoke about her entry into politics to eventually become the first Muslim woman to sit in the Cabinet, Sughra Ahmed, President of the Islamic Society of Britain, who is the first woman to be elected to a national Muslim organisation, who spoke about how Muslim religious leadership needed to reflect on and respond to its British context, and Fahma Mohamed, a trustee of Integrate Bristol and activist in the anti-FGM campaign, whose presentation both challenged the cultures that perpetuate or accept FGM as a practice and perceptions of Muslim women and girls, arguing 'for the record: we are not deprived, we are privileged'. The event also included a performance by a Bristol-based performance poet: Shagufta K.

The event highlighted significant ways that Muslim women have been having an impact in public life - whether in formal politics, Muslim organisations in Britain, or grass-roots campaigning on gender issues. It addressed issues of barriers to and gaps in women's representation and inclusion, and set out some key challenges for political, community and public organisations. The event was attended by approximately 130 people, including academics, community groups, students, school pupils, Bristol City Council personnel, Councillors and police. The speakers' talks have been made available via the project website and Public Spirit, and excerpts from them were used as materials in subsequent workshops with Muslim women across Bristol, which explored spaces of women's engagement. Hundreds of users have since accessed the videos of the speakers' presentations.

I was invade to chair the expert panel in March 2017 by the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams to help inform the development of the future Sex and Relationships (SRE) curriculum as part of the Health and Wellbeing Area of Learning Experience (AoLE). The panel were asked to identify issues and opportunities which could inform decisions around supporting the teaching profession to deliver high quality SRE in schools more effectively.
Specifically, the group were tasked with:
1) providing recommendations to the Cabinet Secretary for Education on how current SRE practice might be improved before 2022 and the new curriculum being introduced.
2) providing recommendations for the Cabinet Secretary for Education and the pioneer schools on the future of Sex and Relationships Education in Wales as part of Health and Wellbeing AoLE. The group focused its attention on providing recommendations on the future of SRE in the context of the new curriculum.ch and September 2017. The exploratory remit of the panel enabled the group to think big and engage with innovative and effective SRE practices in Wales and internationally, while simultaneously considering the very local, national and international affordances and challenges that beset the unique field of SRE, as a cross-disciplinary subject. The panel therefore comprised of academic specialists in SRE, service providers in SRE, and teachers with SRE responsibilities. See entry for 'informing policy and practice' and 'publications' for the reports and recommendations that ensued.

Roundtable Session
Morag McDermont, University of Bristol Law School
Bringing scholars working on empirical research projects to
discuss evolving understandings of practices, subjectivities
and relationships of those working in the borderlands of law;raising critical questions about the changing boundaries of
legal authority and how the borders of law are constructed,
negotiated and traversed in practice. Borders need to be
regulated and policed, making them interesting sites for
investigation. At borders disputes break out - who should be
policing the border, what is the border for anyway? Law takes
on different forms depending on what is required of it: law can
be violence; law can be enabler. Borderlands are places where
things happen, much of it is translation. Local social ecologies
develop in which border policing meets varieties of border
crossings (legal and illegal), opens up unpredictable contacts,
exchanges and translations, and border workers manage, exploit
and survive the border conditions.

Results and Impact PRODUCTIVE MARGINS FESTIVAL 2017 PROGRAMME

THURSDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER 2017 8am-8pm

The Station: https://www.creativeyouthnetwork.org.uk/the-station







8.0 am

Co-production Breakfast: Turning the University Inside Out; Bringing Communities Outside In.

Informal conversations between communities, university and city about existing and future partnership working.A focus on praxis and transformation of working relationships. Informed by significant reflections/moments that stand out on the work of Productive Margins.


9.45-10.30 am

Isolation, Loneliness and Older People

Busy streets, laughter, the sound of children playing - but what lies behind closed doors in our communities, especially for those in later life, living alone?

A group of community researchers, in collaboration with the Universities of Bristol and Cardiff, and with the Southville Community Development Association and the 3Gs Development Trust, have been exploring the loneliness of older people in their local communities.

Alonely is a collection of diverse stories based on our research. Our aim is to make the experiences of older people more visible as a way of encouraging dialogue between communities, professionals, academics and artists.


11 - 12 pm

Life Chances

Life Chances' is a widely-used phrase, adopted by UK governments to headline their policies on children and poverty. Project design and delivery has been co-produced between community organisations, community volunteers and academics. The focus is exploring life on a low income and the regulatory services that families encounter in two urban settings - the Easton area of Bristol and Butetown, Riverside and Grangetown in Cardiff.The 'Life Chances' research project has produced a novel, co-authored with community volunteers, community partners, researchers and artists. Fictional characters were created, loosely based on individual's lives, using factual material to create fictional storylines, describing the impact of different regulatory systems - such as benefits, housing, immigration, child protection - on their lives.

Jewellery was also created, expressing creativity and hopes for a better future. There will be a performance of the 'Game of Life Chances',illustrating the life chances of characters from the novel.


This session explores the Life Chances Game, with film, jewellery, novel readings, song recording, and a discussion.


12.15-1.00

Data and Women

Women and girls can make informed choices about how they use and value their personal data. But they need greater understanding of data sharing and ownership first.

Data and Women was a joint project with Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) in Bristol and 3Gs Community Development Trust (3Gs) in Merthyr Tydfil..

Female participants explored the concept of 'data' - their own, and relating to their local community. Participants worked with artists to create data maps and visualizations, enabling them to better understand their personal data and look at it differently.



1.00-2.00

Lunch from Somali Kitchen CIC

As part of the research project, the Somali Kitchen was established as a Community Interest Company. Somali Kitchen are a group of Somali women living in Easton who meet regularly at Single Parent Action Network (SPAN).

Somali Kitchen have been exploring how the local environment shapes food habits in our community, homes and our children's schools. We are worried about the negative impacts of fast food takeaways on our community, the environment and our children's health.


We want to work with others in the community to improve the health of our community and provide a cleaner, healthier environment for our families, and to promote fresh, nutritious food and a thriving, affordable local food culture in Easton.


Lunch will be served by the Somali Kitchen: a delicious and nutritious offering of curry, rice, salad, injera, dips, and sweet.



2.15 - 3.15

Somali Kitchen and Who Decides What's in My Fridge?


The food project explored how people experience the regulation of their food habits in their community. The project was a collaboration between the University of Bristol and three community organisations in Bristol; Coexist in Stokes Croft, Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) in Knowle West, and Single Parent Action Network (SPAN) in Easton.

In Knowle West, the emphasis was on gathering quantitative and qualitative data through surveying the local community, organising events and holding focus groups. The Junior DPs investigated what influences people's food choices, from the location of shops and the price of goods to the amount of time they have available to cook. In Easton participants worked with the artist to organise a pop-up 'Somali Kitchen'. participants will be speaking about their work with the Somali Kitchen, there will be cordial and spice making, jam-making and recipe sharing, and a conversation about the project, with audience participation.



3.30-4.15

Film Mapping, Making and Mobilising in Merthyr


The 4M's ran from 2013 - 2015 and was a project which aimed to develop new methods of engagement which will mobilise the collective knowledge, resources, and capabilities of communities in the South Wales valleys. Artistic work including Graphic Moves - a film, 'Mashing Up The Land' - sculptural exploration and 'Found Sounds and Street Beats' - sound art. The work was previously exhibited at the Abacus Gallery, Cardiff, The Riverfront, Newport and The Red House In Merthyr Tydfil.


4.30 -5.30

Art & Knowledge Roundtable

1. What are the social, economic, cultural and political barriers and facilitators to creating regulatory mechanisms for engagement?
? how can legal rights support engagement? How might they create barriers?
2. How can the regulatory architecture of spaces of participation support community engagement?
? how might arts and humanities mixed-mode practices produce different modes of regulating spaces of engagement? ? how should regulatory practices be reconfigured to encourage/accommodate perspectives that dissent from the mainstream?
3. How might devolution shape the possibilities for the re-design of regulatory regimes?
4. How can the regulatory architecture of digital spaces be appropriated by communities at the margins for socially innovative, creative engagement?
5. How are regulatory mechanisms for engagement experienced?
? how do aesthetic and affective aspects of co-produced research reshape regulatory regimes?
6. How can the re-designed regulatory regimes developed through this programme be 'scaled up' into more enduring forms of engagement with policy makers and service providers?

Results and Impact The aim of this workshop is to discuss the role of community organisations in engaging with 'regulators' on behalf of community members; what this 'translation' role involves and issues that it raises. This also links to the idea of community 'anchor' organisations. So we are particularly keen for community organisation representatives to attend if at all possible.
We are also being joined by Professor Bronwen Morgan, a regulation expert from the University of New South Wales in Australia (previously Bristol Law school) who has an interest in interaction between regulation and rights, especially in the context of social activism.

Description Relationship Matters Project (4Ms Productive Margins) Healthy Relationships School Assembly 
Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach Local
Primary Audience Schools
Results and Impact The teen girls and Professor Renold delivered a healthy relationships assembly (x2) to 300 students and 20 staff in their own high school to raise awareness about sexual harassment in schools, online and in their communities. The dartafacts created as part of the Relationships Matter project were ready to be shared. This is the girls' own words from their co-authored chapter (see Libby et al. 2017)."Fired up by what we had created, we were now ready to share with the wider school. A whole school assembly was the way we wanted to do it. At the beginning of the project, we weren't sure about speaking on these issues in assemblies, but we felt empowered by our dartafacts and we wanted students and staff not only to feel how we feel when they are subjected to everyday sexual harassment, but how this form of harassment is so often ruled out as "banter" and seen as normal.
Assemblies are formal. They are also high status and supported by heads of years and senior management. Usually nothing much happens in school assemblies. There's a lot of being talked at. We wanted to make our assembly interactive. So we set about working with Emma to inject some movement and participation into our assembly, not just by sharing our story and dartafacts, but by inviting students to have the chance to join our 'Relationship Matters' campaign for a "better and real relationships education". We designed and delivered two school assemblies (age 11-14) to over 300 pupils.
Experimenting with the usual format of our school assembly, we arranged the space so that students' first point of contact was with one of our dartafacts: the 17ft 'Runway of Disrespect'. Arriving early, we rolled it out and made a barrier with the chairs so that as students entered the assembly hall they had to walk by, look down on and read the words on the runway before taking their seats (we got special permission to do this, given the graphic nature of some of the words). Next, we put two slips of paper and a coloured felt tip was placed on each of the student chairs (over 150 of them!): one slip had the printed rulers on one side and the heading, "we need a healthy relationships education because ..." was on the other. This slip connected directly to our campaign. The second slip was blank. Finally, the PowerPoint screen projected a super-size image of the Tagged Heart, and two large heart shaped foil helium balloons were gently swaying mid- air. The stage was set!
Over the next 20 minutes we shared our story and the making of our dartafacts. It was nerve racking because we didn't know how students or staff were going to
react. Some of us were more nervous than others, so only those who felt comfortable in doing the talking led the presentation. Students were invited to listen, watch, read, touch and feel them. We read out the poem "Scream Shout Speak Out", taking one line each. Individual volunteers were asked to sound out the words and phrases on the rulers and the shame chain. This wasn't easy to do as words were hand written (and not so neat!), and on the ruler-skirt they could be back to front. But the fact that the messages are difficult to read was an important part of the process - it got across how experiences of sexual harassment can be hard to hear and talk about.
Other interactive elements were more inclusive and involved everyone. We passed our Tagged Heart around the whole assembly and asked students to "look after our feelings".because "these are our feelings". We were worried that the heart might get trashed, but everyone was really careful and we got it back in one piece, even after being handled by a couple of hundred students.
At the end of the assembly, students were invited to take part in the 'Relationship Matters' campaign and share their thoughts in writing on "why they think a real relationships education should be compulsory for all schools in Wales".
Students were also asked to comment on what they felt about our assembly. These messages were really powerful. We got comments that said how proud they were of how we were standing up and speaking out about these issues and how we acknowledged that both boys and girls get upset about hearing these comments. Some people apologized for not realizing how much their comments hurt and some shared their own experiences of sexual harassment. Other comments asked for advice and support on particular issues. There wasn't one comment that ridiculed what we were doing. We were so impressed not only by the respectful ways students responded to our assembly, but in their messages to us, and for our campaign. And while we weren't collecting comments from teachers, one teacher came over after the assembly to share her story about similar things that had happened to her when she was younger. The head of year and head teacher also publicly shared their support for our campaign, and praised the creative ways in which we were raising awareness of these issues.
As our assembly drew to a close, we invited students to stamp on the 'Runway of Disrespect' as loudly and roughly as they wanted to. We were keen that students not only to got an opportunity to take part in some of the activities we created to make these issues matter, but also to have a physical outlet and inject a bit of fun into what are serious issues to begin the day with! " (Libby et al. 2018)
The assembly formed the basis of their presentation to Welsh Women's Aid (see Engagement Entry, "Making Healthy Relationships Matter")

They shared their story of the project (see artefact Valentine Card Activism entry), their listening assembly and Valentine card activism. The speakers for the day included Leighton Andrews AM who had recently passed the VADWSV bill (and who had received a special valentine card written and signed by the girls). At the end of their presentation they called for a healthy relationships practitioner guide and a young people's guide. Seven months later, the guide was published and included the 'Relationship Matters' project as an example of best practice for creatively and safely raising awareness of sexual violence in the schools (and communities, given the three touring exhibitions of their story). The Young People's guide, was also funded in subsequent months (and which the group continued to work on and produced the 'Under Pressure' Project, and well as the advisory group for the guide. http://avow.org/en/news/welsh-womens-aid-conference-2015/

Results and Impact Relationship Matters project cited here - including images. TITLE: Red flags, rulers and ropes: creative approaches to teaching gender equality

Young people are eager to explore relationships, stereotypes and confidence, and schools are responding in innovative ways

"Agenda, an online toolkit produced by Cardiff University, NSPCC Wales, Welsh Women's Aid, the Children's Commissioner for Wales and the Welsh government, aims to challenge negative attitudes in secondary schools through arts and crafts. One example is "the ruler skirt" - a creative response to boys lifting up girls' skirts with rulers. During the activity, young people are asked to write the negative things they want to stop, and the positive things they want to change, on rulers. The rulers can then be tied to a belt to make a skirt, which can be read or worn. The idea is to make visible the hurtful and often hidden experiences that can happen to girls and to turn them into something positive.
"Using the arts can provide a safe space to deal with very sensitive issues," says Emma Renold, a professor of childhood studies at Cardiff University, who led the project. "It takes the pressure off and is fun."
This piece generated a lot of interest in AGENDA and the methodologies by third sector organisations and schools. As a result Fearless Futures invited Professor renold and her agenda working group team to keynote a workshop based around the ruler-skirt story (see The Gender Assembly on Nov 8th 2017, http://www.fearlessfutures.org/2017/08/01/join-us-gender-assembly-conference-november-8th-london-tga17/)
