This proposal details an approach for evaluating a planned project led by SII called Participatory Cities: a new inclusive, system-based approach to stimulating and supporting dense networks of practical ‘participation culture’ in cities around the world. With proof of concept developed and tested in London, UK, by the Participatory City Foundation, the model will now be implemented in Montreal and Halifax, as well as the two Toronto communities at the centre of this proposal: Alexandra Park and Regent Park. Developmental evaluation of the kind proposed, shaped and iteratively applied through processes of co-production, is an ideal mechanism for fostering the learning needed to build connected and productive neighbourhoods in which people find novel ways to come together, share and support one another in this moment shaped by the coronavirus crisis to ultimately co-create their vision and action plan for a resilient future.
