Social Tapestries is a Proboscis research programme developed as part of our SoMa research initiative. It builds upon many of the partnerships and collaborations initially developed for Urban Tapestries, with its own special remit to broaden these to include more grassroots community groups and initiatives, public agencies and government departments and businesses and industry.

As with many of our projects, creating a balance and combination of partners and supporters is key to delivering our collaborative ethos as well as dynamic and exciting outcomes. Proboscis welcomes expressions of interest from potential collaborators whether they are community organisations, government departments, art groups, mobile network providers, academics or industry.
