Unearth Hidden Assets through Community Co-Design and Co-Production was a collaborative research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (Connected Communities programme), in which The Glass-House was a partner. In this project, co-design and co-production were employed as a way to uncover hidden assets in communities and unlock their potential.

Four sub-projects were carried out in collaboration with communities in four different locations: Tidworth (Wiltshire), Shinfield Rise (Wokingham), Newcastle and Stoke-on-Trent.

All projects explored how hands-on, creative activities including play, games and theatre, can be useful in attracting and engaging people, unearthing and unlocking assets, and in initiating positive changes within communities.
