My Overview: "Advocating Inclusion"

Up till the Christmas break research continued into Levenshulme aided by meetings that sought to further establish the desires of multiple residents and used groups and asses the viability of potential projects. At this stage accessibility of the train station was the primary concern of the project. Be it physical, mental or visual, the existing train station can only be accessed via 27 steps, it is hidden away from the main road and is not clearly signposted. Local artists expressed a desire to develop a commuter gallery that would share Levenshulme with the city and the city with Levenshulme. After Christmas an event called the January sale was held at Trafford Centre to share the range of projects with a wider audience and help to develop them. The event brought architecture to the forefront, presenting it to people that might not usually encounter it or feel as they are allowed to comment on it. The event established multiple desires through discussion and interaction.
