The ISP Manual is part of Invisible spaces of parenthood: A collection of pragmatic propositions for a better future, a Communal Knowledge project by Andrea Francke that explores issues surrounding childcare in collaboration with local nurseries, childminders, children’s centres and parent groups, and looks for new models and possibilities. This included setting up an exhibition and a workshop space at The Showroom, summer 2012, for visitors to test out DIY designs for furniture and forms of play, some of which were gathered through an open call.
The manual contains eight especially commissioned essays as well as interviews, event excerpts, discussions and documentation from the exhibition.
