Throughout the course of sixteen month project we conducted two very unique engagement initiatives with The Sharing Project:
Crowdfunding Campaign – In May of 2013 ran a four week crowdfunding campaign that engaged with over 100 individuals and organizations to raise over $11,000 to help fund our research.
Engagement Tour – The Sharing Tour was a project that was sponsored with the generous support of The Vancouver Foundation. In collaboration with neighbourhood organizations and groups (i.e. Neighbourhood Houses, Village Vancouver), we held Sharing Project events in seven neighbourhoods across Vancouver and engaged with over 140 community residents. These events took place from January to March of 2014. The goal of these events were to: share the results of our research, understand some of the unique ways communities currently share, and identify the support and resources that would be needed for these initiatives to flourish.
