Nudge 5 – Out on the street

Nudge 5 – on the street

We love getting out on the street and changing how it feels for our community. We have been testing out nudges for years in Palace Sq and this year outside Hot Diggity Dog.

We are really excited to share that we are one of the communities selected for Creative Civic Change funding from the Local Trust. Together we can now create more joy, colour and activity along Union Street and make our community voice heard.

Did you spot the zebras? To listen to how people feel on the street and gather ideas we have been out and about chatting to local people about what they would love to see, what they would enjoy being part of and how the street could change. Keep reading to find out how to get involved and what we have been up to.

Have an idea? If you are a local artist, maker, performer, local business…or just know what you would love to see on the street then we want to hear from you! One side of A4, pictures, simple words and an idea of costs is all we need to start a conversation –

Please note we are now full for projects and will be accepting proposals again in June 2020

Have an opinion? Do you know what you love and hate? Do you know and care about Union Street? Then join a bunch of opinionated local people to look at what’s happening along the street and say what you think. Together we can make sure what happens is great value, right for our community and that we learn together. If this sounds like something for you, get in touch and join the Community Critics. No experience required!

Below read what happened in the first 3 months.

Plymouth Design Forum 400 x 400 challenge! We have brought PDF’s Instagram challenge to the street and it is glowing! This is the were the old Pine shop used to be, it has been the site of 2 fires in recent years and we wanted to bring some Joy and Colour to it!
