Together with Dundee’s Product Design Studio, Unlimited Theatre and Liverpool based Design agency Uniform, the Media Innovation Studio launched a new publication – How to Co-Design our Digital Future –at the first Arts and Humanities Research Council Knowledge Economy Showcase in London.
The book , a ‘how to’ guide for anyone interested in setting up a project that enables communities to input into the design and development of new technology and to benefit financially for their labours captured the imagination of over 300 guests who gathered at Kings Place, home to the Guardian newspaper in London.
Paul Egglestone, Director at the Media Innovation Studio, said: “I’m really proud of the book because the people who participated in the ‘Make Some More Noise’ project are amazing people. I hope the book reflects some of this – particularly the values shared across the project by everyone who was involved in it.
“There are plenty of great suggestions in here for anyone who might be thinking about how best to include everyone in a truly creative design and development process. I’ve not come across many better examples of how to do this properly.”
Speaking about the project at the launch event Jon Spooner, Unlimited theatre’s director, said simply: “I think what we’ve ended up making is a really beautiful thing. We’re all really pleased with it”.
David Willets MP set the tone for the day kicking off the event with a speech acknowledging the economic and social contribution the Creative Industries make to the UK.
