Following on from our previous post on Heart4Harlow Festival. We’re analysing the responses to the Harlow Habitats game. We asked participants one of a set of questions, including:
- What or who would you give an award for being here? and why?
- Complete these phrases: Harlow gives me….. I give Harlow…
- What makes you feel good round here?
- Where do you go in Harlow for a laugh?
We’re building up a picture of what makes Harlow a good place to live. And we plan to hold an exhibition presenting all the responses to the Harlow Habitats game in the Autumn, in a town centre venue.
Also from our position within the festival, we got a good feel for what a good community asset the Water Gardens are, in the centre of Harlow.

On May 28 and 29 2016, Delve engaged directly with over 100 people at Heart4Harlow Festival. Playing our Harlow Habitats game, using two large 8 sided die, we found out just how positive people feel about their town.
We mapped everyone’s responses, onto a map of Harlow, indicating where people liked to ‘just be’ or where they like to go ‘for a laugh’. With each individual response being recorded on a tag.
