People were suspicious as I approached them, but when they saw what I was giving them, visibly softened and genuinely thanked me (I generally would say "Hi/Excuse me, I'm doing a project on community space, and this is something you can have"). Typically, people looked at the back of the card to see what I was selling (I assume) and when they saw nothing, were surprised/relieved/pleased.
A number of people stopped to look at it and ask me what it was all about, so I would explain a little more about the project, and how I saw the space as a community space but wasn't sure if other people saw it that way, and that the card was a way of getting people to think about the space differently and to start a discussion about what the space could be as well. I had very positive responses. People seemed touched that I was standing out in the cold and had made something so nice to give out, and they would look at the wall on the site, and then the wall on the photo and make the recognition.
