STREAMLINE is a new tool for community engagement and participatory research. It is a bespoke interview methodology that can be tailored to the needs of individual research projects. STREAMLINE is made up of a series of colourful laminated A3 canvasses. Each canvas explores a different aspect of the future. The canvases are designed to help the researcher understand the interviewee’s hopes and desires for the future, and can be used to understand synergies and difference in future visions among different groups. Using a mix of images, storytelling and multiple-choice questions on each canvas, participants are engaged and rich, multi-layered data can be gathered in a relatively short period of time. The format has been used successfully in one-on-one interviews, with small groups (up to five people) and in larger workshops (multiple groups of 5).
This dataset contains a userguide, catalogue, and graphics files for 14 canvas templates and 500+ tiles, which were created by Scriberia (www.scriberia.co.uk) based on ideas from Aster de Vries Lentsch and Marc Metzger. For more information please refer to: www.streamline-research.com
