We asked

A survey was required as part of the project evaluation For Our Spaces to explore place sentiment and to gain an insight into the response to public art interventions beyond social media commentary. (Our Spaces – Warwickshire County Council)

To make best use of this opportunity, the research questions were enhanced to enable responses to inform future projects within the place, projects and partnerships team.

The survey was complementary to the University of Warwick’s Getting Creative with Sustainablity programme. For more information on this click on the links below:

You said

Key messages from the survey findings that will be applied to future project design include:

  1. Suggestions to improve the towns
  2. Values and feelings toward art, heritage and community

Information will be shared with local stakeholders including:

  1. good things about the towns
  2. descriptions of the towns where helpful

Other information will be used in the Our Spaces evaluation.

We did

As part of our medium term work plans we will:

  • Develop a plan to communicate findings with stakeholders and other services areas
  • Update Our Spaces project evaluation
  • Consider the usefulness of such projects for public engagement:  the Our Spaces project has allowed the team to develop new connections and new projects. This survey offers legacy benefits for planning future projects.


Vital and vibrant places are integral to our sense of wellbeing.   

In 2021, to add another layer of interest to our towns, a project team offered opportunity for artists, designers, and creatives to get invaluable experience working on a collaborative public realm project.  

The result was 7 functional artist led installations, offering visual and tactile interest to our towns: these also helped connect green and urban environments and communicated community voice and identity.
