SWOT is an acronym.
To 'SWOT', is to analyse the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of an organisation as a form of appraisal. From it, you can discern the organisation's current position at a given point in time and forecast future potential.
Finding Maindee has undergone several SWOT analyses in its time. In this blog post, I will be discussing what observations can be made from these analyses, from 2014 to today.

April is Autism Awareness Month. World Autism Awareness Week tak is takes place during the first week of April, and Earth Day is celebrated on the 22nd of the month. In Maindee Unlimited's calendar, April will be dedicated to evaluation.
With this blog post, I will be sharing what we are doing as part of our evaluation, from SWOT analysis to a Hockney-esque patchwork of Chepstow Road (and a few other bits in between).

Finding Maindee is coming to a close. Financially, the project closed on 28th February, 2019, and we have now entered the final phase of reflection and evaluation.
This blog post, and subsequent posts, will be used to formally and professionally evaluate what has happened; to reflect on what went well and what could have been improved, to document lessons learned, and to look to the future role of art, regeneration and place recognition in the lifespan of Maindee Unlimited.
The informal and the personal will inevitably creep into this evaluation, partly because that’s how I think and write, and also as I have become intrinsically intertwined with Finding Maindee, Maindee Unlimited and the library over the last three and half years.
