Car Culture

'Car Culture' is a project responding to concerns following the death of Hope Fennell, from the Highbury Youth Parliament, from local residents and councillors.  Kings Heath Residents Forum working with Hall Green Arts Forum and Sustrans are working with Community First funding to run a pilot scheme at Kings Heath Primary and Queensbridge schools, running workshops to gauge what children think and engage parents and local residents in discussions around road use and safety.

Children have used rice to visualise statistics and develop presentations, reviewing their journey to school, interviewing each other and parents and creating short re-enactments to help discussion.  They have been researching road safety and polling parents and children at school.  The 30th March was an opportunity to raise awareness and discussion across Kings Heath - we ran surveys, interviews, and exhibition based on work by young people.
