University-community collaborations are often complex, fraught,emotional affairs. Participants devote a lot of time, energy and emotion to bridging differences, improvising solutions, and making things work.This can be difficult and sometimes frustrating, but can also have a transformative legacy for the participants and the wider communities they are part of. These legacies, however, are not always easy to observe,identify and authorise. As we will explore in this chapter, some ofthe most important legacies of community-university partnerships are intangible and refer to emotions, affects, ongoing processes and emerging potentials: for example, inspiration, confidence, friendship, as well as knowledge, ideas and networks. These legacies are at least as important as projects' harder, more tangible and easily measurable legacies.
