The visits where documented by photographer Paula Moss, which were presented to the public in a gazeebo on a village green, alongside visualisation of a selection of the ideas/comments into proposals or artefacts. The local residents were invited to visit us and discuss their responses and ideas over tea and cake. The whole project was then fed into the ‘Public Art – Cooperative Enquiry' and became part of the ACE toolkit.

The 'Public Art – Cooperative Enquiry' forum consisted of artists, arts officers, architects etc discussing their views, roles and devising a number of action research projects to test out their ideas. This resulted in a Public Art Audience development Toolkit.
