projects where participants use arts to audit, comment on and or improve their
local environment. Art is used to engage with a community and create ownership
of an area. Its wonderful. You have provided
a very useful tool that engages the user more immediately and in-depth than they
think their own reconnaissance missions have been. It has proved to be very valuable.
