The Cowley Road Carnival 2017

Last Friday (5 May) students on the Built Environment Foundation (at Oxford Brookes) exhibited some of the work they have been doing for the Cowley Road Carnival. The carnival started in 2000, aiming to give Cowley Road its groove back. It worked. The carnival is brilliant!

This year the students have carried out research to provide Cowley Road Works (CRW), the organisers of the Cowley Road Carnival, with a socio-economic profile of the different wards along the Cowley Road and a strategy to raise awareness of what the Cowley Road has to offer. This has inspired a range of different ideas including the greater use of social media; interactive maps and apps and finally a range of products to help Carnival goers get the most out of the event. Some photos of the exhibition (and the 2016 carnival) follow...
