Doing Zero

  • Jessica Higham

Doing Zero was an international collaboration between participants in Manchester and Nairobi, managed by Design Manchester and Nairobi Design Week with funding from the British Council. I supported on traditional project management tasks including venue liaison and management; participant outreach; photography; quarterly evaluation; and support on financial management. I also had the pleasure of speaking about the project at the annual Design Manchester symposium and through the project built relationships with organisations including the Manchester Libraries group, Manchester Youth Zone, Manchester Communications Academy, and Manchester City Council.
