Creative Citizens’ Variety Pack: Inspiring Digital Ideas for Community Projects

“From beekeepers to bakers, storytelling to social media, and newspapers to graphic novels, we hope you’ll find something useful here whether you’re currently involved in a community project yourself, are looking for future ideas for your group, or just consider yourself a ‘creative citizen’.”

This pack, created by the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art, is a collection of practical case studies: 12 diverse, inspirational community projects, all making use of digital tools in creative ways for social benefit, with suggestions and advice from the people involved.

The pack includes a case study by Louise Dredge (The Glass-House) and Charlotte Blakemore (Tidworth Mums) about using Facebook and other social media to support and engage your local community.
