Dan Robinson

Project Designer, Barking

Why I wanted to join the team?

I first heard about Participatory City when I moved to London and I was so inspired by the ambition and scale of the project I even considered moving to Barking and Dagenham to get involved! Supporting local residents to effect change in their own communities through the Every One Every Day project felt like an opportunity too good to miss and working alongside residents to co-design projects is something Iā€™m super excited about. 

A little bit about my background.

I have a varied background and have worked in the design, education and trade sectors and most recently co-founded a social enterprise working with young people who have been excluded from mainstream school. I am motivated by supporting people to define their own future and passionate about encouraging everyone to grow their creative confidence.
