How do you mobilse hyper-local creative communities and enable them to design and create collectively for a better good.

At any given time in small pockets of communities there will be groups of creatives (graphic designers, developers, writers, project managers, planners, architects etc) who could quickly club together to solve hyper-local creative problems.

Good examples would be to pool resources and develop a series of creative events in old peoples homes. Or help local businesses with creative solutions (design menus, build better websites, produce signage or write great copy). Local communities can be made better through great design and the only way to do this is by creating collectives of doers and diving it.

How do you create that local network and incentivise both the doers and the people who need these skills.
