Sense of Place Research Project

Hay, P, Evans, K, Elders, L and Jones, D.A (2016) Sense of Place Research Project. 5x5x5=creativity.


The Sense of Place Research Project involved families at early years settings across three areas of the city working alongside educators, family support workers and artists. The research project was designed with the aim of working with the families of young children to improve outcomes, reduce disadvantage and raise aspiration, in line with the finding of the DfE report 'Performing against the odds: developmental trajectories of children in the EPPSE 3-16 study' (Siraj-Blatchford et al, 2010).

5x5x5=creativity is an arts-based action research organisation with charitable status that supports children and young people in their exploration and expression of ideas, helping them develop creative skills for life. 5x5x5=creativity helps improve children and young people’s life chances by developing their confidence in themselves as creative learners and thinkers whilst inspiring higher levels of motivation and engagement in their learning.
5x5x5=creativity was commissioned by Bristol Local Authority to deliver a research project with two year olds and their families to explore family heritage, culture and narrative with the aim of deepening aspiration and confidence in life-long and life-wide learning and parents’ participation in their children’s learning.
