With the announcement of Darwen 3-Day Market's demolition, I strategised a plan to make better use of the space, involving the community along the way.

Research / Co-design / Strategy / Branding

 

Heart of Darwen is a space created to encourage idea generation from across the community about the future of Darwen town centre. 

    

Currently focusing on the upcoming space left behind by the 3-Day Market; locals, young and old, have developed ideas about how the space could soon be reinvented. 

    

Not only does Heart of Darwen strive to improve the town, it also aims to celebrate what makes the community special.

The website provides a platform for the people of Darwen to find out information and submit ideas about the future of the town's market.

 "We were impressed and excited by Liam’s research, understanding of the issues and his ideas going forward and were keen to have him on Partnership Board to help with the consultation on options for
the future of the 3-day market.

 

His role has been invaluable in helping the partnership communicate their vision and ideas but he has also been a great advocate for the young people of Darwen."
