Cowley Carnival 2018: Student Work

Last Friday (27 April) 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. Watch a video of the 2017 events below:

This year, with the support of Cowley Road Works, the students have been exploring the diverse communities and places that make up the Cowley Road. The exhibition featured the research they have been doing into Cowley Road and the visions and ideas they have for making the street an even better public space that meets the needs of all of Cowley's residents.

Emma Wragg the course leader said: 'this is the fourth year that students in the School (of the Built Environment) have benefited from working on a live project with Cowley Road Words.  It  really enriches the student learning experience - developing design, management and collaborative skills that are all crucial in practice. The opportunity to make a difference in their local community also empowers students to produce great work!'
