Eleanor's thesis explores ways in which participatory art can use Asset-Based Community Development methodologies to catalyse more climate-resilient communities. It does so through dissecting Bristol and London-based case studies and interviewing resilience and sustainability leaders and participatory artists, as well as reflecting on her own art practice and experience. It concludes with a toolkit of recommendations for fellow participatory artists or community facilitators who are looking to work with communities around climate resilience.
