Why I wanted to join the team
The concept of participatory culture as promoted by the Participatory City Foundation aligns with my values and principles. Having previously worked and researched on projects ranging from community led regeneration, community led heritage, and community led design, Participatory City is a valuable part of my journey as a development practitioner. I am excited to join the team as it allows me to continue my research on understanding the decision-making processes that are involved in initiating and sustaining such projects.
