We would like to express our gratitude to all the students and staff at Sheffield Hallam University who have contributed to the project over the years. Thank you to all the students who have taken part in the project, and those who have given their time to be interviewed and produce artwork. We would also like to thank the module leaders from the visual communication course who accommodated & supported the project, Lee Ford, Frazer Hudson and Jo Lee. We would like to thank the gallery support staff and technicians Tim Machin, Will Carr, Anna Wiggins and Andy Buckley.

A huge thanks go to our brilliant student designer Chloe Daly, and student psychology researcher Richard Stevens, and the support given by the Educational Research Fund at Sheffield Hallam to make their employment possible. We would also like to thank Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) and Food Works Sheffield for their support and generosity. Thank you to photographer and filmmaker Matte Black for the detailed documentation.
