Thank you for your interest in the MOCO project. Although the project has now ended, we hope that you will continue to use our site and resources to inspire your community group.
Using MOCO for inspiration
Although the project is no longer accepting submissions, we would like to share some resources that your community group could use in similar activities or projects.
We invite you to watch the videos from our July workshop, in which Dorothy Sheridan and Fiona Courage discuss the history of the MO social research methods used in the MOCO project.
The MOCO project used historical Mass Observation material as basis for its activities. All MO material is available for researchers, historians and other interested individuals. Find out more above.
At the MOCO project we collected diaries, questionnaire replies, photos and observational accounts, using online submission forms from Wufoo.com. Above is some practical advice on how you can use these forms to collect information on your community website.
Would you like to collect the experiences, thoughts and memories of your group members? Setting simple writing or photography activities can be a great way to document personal experiences and group histories. Follow the link above for ideas on how to individualise our basic tasks for your group.
When thinking about the research methods and activities that would suit your own project, you might find it useful to browse the material we have collected.
The future of MOCO
Although the MOCO project is now closed indefinitely, there is a possibility that the project will be taken up by the Mass Observation Archive in the future. If you wish to register an interest in such future activity please contact MOA .
