Expressing Vibrancy is a research project that looks at neighbourhoods through the lens of culture. The project’s aim is to answer the question of what makes a community culturally vibrant, and to whom. The study forms a big-picture understanding of neighbourhoods by examining them through a cultural lens. Working with key partners from an array of academic disciplines whose additional networks of knowledge, expertise, and equipment will mean the most robust study can take place. As a project partner, Civicplan analyzed the districts under investigation in order to demonstrate their relative strengths in terms of vibrancy.
