RCA project on Street Champions

Recently, Lambeth Council asked a team of students at the Royal College of Art to undertake a project on the Street Champions programme; here are some photos taken last week of the final presentation. The RCA team interviewed many Street Champions, and several “key insights” cropped up, namely: lack of clarity as to what SCs actually do (or shouldn’t do), risk of Lambeth offloading its responsibilities onto SCs, the risks of leading, and the big positive effect of actually doing activities. The RCA team also worked up some communications ideas, and produced mock-ups of comms materials, which you can see in the photos.
