Evaluation of the ‘Our Place’ empty shops project
DC Research was commissioned by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) to carry out an evaluation of the ‘Our Place’ empty shops project that took place in both Blackburn and Taunton in early 2010. The aim of the Our Place project was to provide creative and learning centres in empty shops, with a focus on presenting a learning offer that supported people to start engaging more actively with the changes in their community. The project’s funding came from a grant awarded to MLA from The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) Skills Learning Revolution Transformation Fund.
The final report is available to download at the Living Places website
