Perception Peterborough



Peterborough is currently one of the UKs four Environmental Cities and it aims to become the Environmental Capital.

Perception Peterborough is a dynamic and creative visioning project which brought together key local representatives with creative thinkers to develop innovative approaches to the challenges and opportunities facing Peterborough over the next 15-20 years. Proboscis was commissioned to develop and lead a series of creative workshops alongside consultants Haring Woods Associates.

As part of our research for the project, we conducted an anarchaeology of the city and its people and created a series of Impressions to inspire different perspectives on the key themes for workshop participants and project stakeholders.
