The Ministry of Make and Do assigns a team of four 'make and doers' to each area of the city. They run collaborative design challenges in the area, a bit like OpenIDEO but with more place based/location specific information.

Nuala commented on The Ministry of Make and Do

What a despicable comment from Sir. Howe. It makes me that it would be great if a philanthropist or successful company would fund a prototype of 'The Ministry of Make and Do' as a way of investigating if it would work outside of the local administrative system. This would render the political agenda irrelevant. However, having municipalities in-house expertise at the ‘make and do’ teams disposal could prove to be invaluable in the collaborative design process, especially in the prototyping phase where temporary installation licences, health and safety assessment etc. would be necessitated.
