Maker Library Network
The British Council recognises that one of the biggest barriers to the development of creative economies is infrastructure -whether that’s high speed internet, places to meet or the social networks which make others with similar ambitions visible and accessible.
This brief asked us to consider how to connect young designers and makers, initially in 3 countries, and ultimately in 11 countries on 4 continents. The light touch format we proposed offered simple ways for them to forge connections both locally and internationally, through a simple template of making, display and sharing. It successfully facilitated knowledge and skills exchange amongst young professionals and encouraged public engagement with creativity.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
