The group I was in had a relaxed yet purposeful approach to the jam. We got out on the streets early to interview potential users, heard them shoot down our first idea, pivoted, then went out again, and ended up designing a local currency for people who aren’t local to the city.
Other groups looked at accessibility in Leeds Market and a playful way to get children cooking healthy meals with their families.
Alternatively you can read Jane Wood’s reflections on the jam over at &Co Cultural Marketing – thanks Jane!
