Funded by the city of Utrecht, RAUM is an arts and design programme which deployed Hello Lamp Post to engage with citizens about the future of their local area, through art and design installations. The deployment included a visualisation period, where the data gathered was shared publicly with the community for free. By giving the data back to the public, we empowered Utrecht citizens, policymakers, planners, designers and officials to use the data for the benefit of the people who provided it.
