Skeleton Park Festival Conversations

On Saturday June 23rd, members of Wellington X tabled at the Skeleton Park Arts Festival. Thank you to everyone who stopped by.  We reconnected with old supporters and met new ones.  We sold t-shirts and banners as we did in 2016. Thank you, Craftivists, for your help with the screen-printing!

It has been a little while since we have canvassed the neighbourhoods so we decided to offer a paper survey asking festival attendees two questions:

  1. What do you like most about living in Kingston?
  2. What are you most worried about in Kingston?

Below are word clouds based on the responses we received to these questions. The word clouds speak for themselves so we won’t do any heavy-duty analysis of the responses, other than to say that people are feeling both good and worried about this city! (Apologies to those whose handwriting we couldn’t quite read.) We hope that in general and leading up to the municipal election folks feel up to standing up for what they like and fighting what they fear.
