CBMDC Shipley Evening Economy Survey Poster - Cat Scott.PNG

SHIPLEY NIGHT TIME ECONOMY

Do you go out in Shipley, or want to? Are you aged 18-30? 

Have your say to improve the evening offer in Shipley before Friday 30 September, 5pm.


I'm Cat Scott, a local artist based in Bradford (www.catscott.co.uk/@catscottart).

I am representing Shipley as an Evening Rep, working on behalf of Bradford Council and with Shipley Town Council, to collect research and create a manifesto to improve the evening economy in Shipley for 18-30 year olds (approximately that age range).


I have a survey that is live until Friday 30 September, 5pm: https://t.co/1hVJsPrFtB 

I aim to engage approximately 18-30 year olds who live, or socialise, or would like to socialise in the Shipley area in the evening. I am interested in hearing from communities from across cultures/backgrounds to make the research as inclusive as possible, and strongly encourage responses from South Asian and Eastern European communities.

I am in the process of arranging some meeting spaces to do some in-person research in Shipley, which I plan to take place on 22, 23, and 30 September, as a mix of 1-1s and/or focus groups, depending on what people prefer. I can also do this over the phone or zoom if people prefer less in person contact, and aren't comfortable with filling out the survey themselves etc.


To get involved or help spread the word, please contact Cat as soon as possible on 07944 593126, or email hello@catscott.co.uk.
