Sorry to post inconsequentially but I'm in a small hot room with 4 fantastic designers who are all coming up with amazing and extraordinary creative ideas for the Co-production Resource and I am so excited that I just had to tell someone!
The designers are Webster from BWA, Tom from Hellotank, and Sean and Emma from EmmaJones.

This is a brief blog, intended to invite comment from everyone on a potential piece of research work.
During the first year of the co-production network (2009 - 2010), a group of around 30 practitioners met face to face every few months.
