GoGoGorillas research aims to show impact on Norwich
The organisers behind the GoGoGorillas outdoor art trail that has captivated Norwich over the last few weeks are about to launch a programme of research. The aim of the research is to get feedback on the life-size art installations, while measuring the economic and social impact of the initiative and of course find out the most popular primates.
Local research agency, Zing Insights is partnering with the organisers to conduct the research and will be surveying residents and visitors to the city over the summer using their innovative interactive iPad research pods. Research will take place starting this weekend at Castle Mall (27-28 July), The Forum (8-9 Aug), Chapelfield (10-11 Aug), Norwich Station (3 Aug), M&S (5-6 Aug), John Lewis (17 Aug).
Jo Walther, Director of Zing Insights said "We hope the findings will show the benefits of projects like this, and will help support similar initiatives in the future. We urge residents and visitors to support us and give us their views". Participants in the research will be entered into a number of prize draws to win GoGoGorilla merchandise worth over £100 including paint your own gorilla kits.
Zing Insights are working in collaboration with organisers Wild in Art and Break Charity.
Charlie Langhorne, Director of Wild in Art said, “We are delighted with how the gorillas have been received. Visitor feedback is vital to enable us to enhance future events and we hope the results will demonstrate the positive impact GoGoGorillas! is having on the local community”.
Michael Rooney, Fundraising Manager of Break Charity said “As a locally based charity we are very pleased that some meaningful research can be undertaken, not only about the impact of the GoGoGorillas project itself, but also whether there has been an increase in the awareness of Break and the work we are involved in.”
