Following our very successful Preston Pride of Place Project last year, as part of our wider national exhibition, Pride of Place Project and caravan tour, we are delighted to announce that we have now published our Preston book. We have been invited to take part in a special event organised by the Psychosocial Research Unit from the School of Social Work, Care and Community. Our Preston Pride of Place Project book will be officially launched during this event. The Imagination and Inquiry seminars form part of the APS seminar and conference network.
