    1 Executive summary Think Differently is a social change campaign that seeks to encourage and support a

    fundamental shift in attitudes and behaviours towards disabled people. As part of its

    campaign it has funded local community action projects throughout Aotearoa, New

    Zealand.

    This report draws together findings from case studies conducted by Synergia with five Think

    Differently projects that received funding through the Round 4 funding (2013-14). These

    case studies were designed to provide a more in-depth insight into the implementation and

    outcomes of a sample of Think Differently projects.

    1.1 Methods Cases were selected to reflect the different types of Think Differently projects. The Round 4

    project leader survey was used to ensure that selected projects were past the initial stages

    of implementation to ensure achievements and outcomes could be evaluated. The selected

    case studies are:

     Accessible Marae - Te Piri o te Ha

     Phab Phusion – Young leaders

     Arts Access Aotearoa – I am an artist campaign

     Taranaki Disabilities Information Centre Trust – Disability audit and advice

     Hamilton City Council – Accessible maps.

    These case studies draw on a range of data sources provided by the project leaders, as well

    as interviews with project leaders, project collaborators and those targeted through the

    projects to identify:

     The problem that the projects were seeking to reduce

     The barriers and enablers to the implementation of the projects, and the factors

    that supported success

     The specific changes that have been made as a result of the projects; their

    influence, reach and sustainability

     The potential for the project to address individual, organisational and community

    wide barriers to inclusion

     The contribution of the project to the key Think Differently outcomes.

    Data was collected through site visits to each of the five projects. This involved a range of

    data collection approaches including:

     Key stakeholder interviews

     An analysis of existing project documentation and reporting.

    A general inductive approach was used to analyse the qualitative data. This approach allows

    us to analyse the data using the evaluation aims and objectives as a framework to explore

    the data. This method was useful in recognising the different contexts and purposes of the

    five case study projects.

    1.2 Case Studies

    1.2.1 Accessible Marae - Te Piri o te Ha

    Accessible Marae seek change to make all marae in Te Tai Tokerau fully accessible to all

    whanau. They aimed to change the environment and behaviours to reduce the exclusion of

    disabled Māori. Their aims have since broadened to include greater societal awareness and

    action.

    1.2.2 Phab Phusion

    Phab Phusion is a dance group that is part of Phab Pacifika. They are a group of both

    disabled and non-disabled youth that come together to learn cultural dances and perform

    at different community events. They aimed to increase awareness of the great talent that

    disabled people have and reduce the stigma associated with disabilities.

    1.2.3 Arts Access Aotearoa
