Work with artists to gather and visualise stakeholder aspirations
Interaction with stakeholders within a project/process can be difficult – either because stakeholders don’t ‘speak the same language’, or the subject and expectations from local government organisations are unclear to stakeholder groups. In these cases, collaboration with artists can help stakeholders to understand challenges and solutions in an informal and inspiring way. For example, capture a difficult scientific dissemination in poem, a sketch, song or visualise stakeholders’ dreams within an artist impression. This approach may also ‘break the ice’ between stakeholders and governmental organisations when discussing delicate issues.
