The Ecology of Cultural Space: mapping artist-led collectives in Leeds project
You are being invited to take part in a research project. Before you decide it is important for you to understand why the research is being done and what it will involve. Please take time to read the following information carefully and discuss it with others if you wish. Ask me if there is anything that is not clear or if you would like more information. Take time to decide whether or not you wish to take part.
The purpose of this project is to build a map of artist-led collectives/organisations within the city of Leeds. This research is aimed at answering the following questions: is a physical site important to collectives? What types of artist collectives are operating within the city? What are the hierarchical notions (if any) of space within the city in relation to artist collectives? Statistically, where are artist collectives most likely to be located and what are the defining factors? Finally, the project will take place over a 2 year period, taking a ‘snap shot’ every 6 months in order to measure location changes and dynamics within the city. The information which each collective/organisation will provide will be uploaded to Google My Maps, which is an online, open source, platform which effectively creates customisable maps layered upon Google Maps.
Please read the FAQ's for further information.Contact the curator
2. I will then email you a consent form before your submission information is made public on Google My Maps.
3. Contact me if you have any more questions.
This is the only set of information which I require from you. The consent forms which can be completed by one member of your collective or by the collective as a whole will be kept in an encrypted file and a hard copy will be stored in a locked cabinet. I ask that you keep a copy of the consent form for your records.
You are welcome to withdraw at any time during the process. This will involve letting me know by a written letter or email that you want to withdraw and then I will remove and destroy all information (personal and private) that you wish form the project documentation. As soon as this is complete I will no longer contact you.
The consent forms which can be completed by one member of your collective or by the collective as a whole will be kept in an encrypted file and a hard copy will be stored in a locked cabinet. I ask that you keep a copy of the consent form for your records.
