The project was realised through a participatory arts process that led to the creation and application of prototype renewable energy devices, used as a means of disseminating knowledge at community level while aiming to influence wider practice and policy.
The effectiveness of the project lay in its use of art as a means of creative facilitation, production and collaboration, which set out to harness community initiative. Through this process the experience of community elders created a foundation for new ideas that addressed real need and enabled specific local knowledge to create innovative solutions that could also impact the future.
