During the A Better World by Design's 2010 workshop, teams of six were formed to launch projectOPEN , our project to provide resources for the homeless, in Providence, Rhode Island. Armed with socks, duct tape and a few other materials to prototype, we kick-started the groups by asking them the following questions:
How can we take the model of projectOPEN and apply it to Providence?
What resources and services does Providence provide that might work well with this existing model?
Does it have to be in a folded map?
What other forms can this resource take?
