Bespoke: Increasing social inclusion through community journalism and bespoke design

July 29, 2015

Authors: Paul Egglestone, Jon Rogers
Abstract: ‘Bespoke’ is a multidisciplinary project investigating how
digital technologies can increase social inclusion and
improve lives. (www.bespokeproject.org)
The research team that formulated ‘Bespoke’ met in
December 2008 after successful selection to participate in a
Digital Economy ‘Sandpit’ event.
Bespoke is a ‘work in progress’ bringing together
researchers from design, journalism and computer science
to explore the possibilities of ‘digital’. Moving beyond
social cohesion projects aimed at giving communities a
voice ‘Bespoke’ is attempting to connect these voices to
tangible benefits in the form of real world outcomes with
genuine impacts. These could be design objects
reconnecting people with the digital world. They could be
changes to the physical environment brought about using
digital technologies.
