<a href="http://www.dott07.com/">Dott 07</a> (Designs of the time 2007) is a year of community projects, events and exhibitions based in North East England that explore what life in a sustainable region could be like – and how design can help us get there.
An initiative of the Design Council and the regional development agency, One NorthEast, <a href="http://www.dott07.com/">Dott 07</a> enables communities and individuals in North East England to collaborate with designers in real-life situations.
