Background Information

The Talking Shop on Tour Concept has been put forward and supported by young people across Wales in numerous Democracy Box Creative Think-ins and Focus Groups and requested by stakeholders, collaborators and partners across Wales since the first Talking Shop pilot in 2019.

The concept of The Talking Shop on Tour takes The Talking Shop model (and all the research and development to date – the design, ethos, and main key ingredients of The Talking Shop – the hosts, the sofa, the lamps and tea trolley, the questions on the walls and question of the day, the Story of Our UK Democracy, a ballot box, a polling booth and democratic and cultural information and creative activities and approaches to deliberative democracy facilitated by professional creatives) and goes on tour becoming The Talking Shop ‘without walls’ for the day on a beach, a park, a housing estate, a village green or high street.  

The Talking Shop on Tour is an outdoor weather dependent concept. We are looking to explore and test  the ‘on tour’ model  as a provocation and engagement tool for the existing Blackwood site within a 25 mile radius encouraging and enticing those who may face multiple barriers to otherwise accessing the shop unit. We simultaneously want to research and develop The Talking Shop On Tour model as a method for reaching members of the public who cannot potentially reach the shop site due to transport and access barriers.
