During this Social Design Talk at Central Saint Martins, the DIY team will reflect on the challenges they encountered in designing and prototyping the DIY Toolkit. This was created to work in many different contexts of use, shaped by different political, cultural and organisational factors. Do come along for a interesting evening of in-depth discussions, if you’re around.
The design and development of the toolkit involved extensive prototyping with development professionals around the world. These include organisations such as UNDP, Oxfam, Social Innovation Exchange and the J.W.McConnell Family Foundation. You can follow more about how the toolkit was made, tested and what these bodies have been saying by following the DIY Toolkit’s blog.
