Design today plays a role both in posing the questions of what to make and what kind of society to aim for, and also in untangling the solutions to these questions. When pursuing social design, it is important to share these questions with the people who are actually engaged in social practice. This paper focuses the principles that facilitate the self-directed collaboration fostered in a co-design project. A framework of principles for understanding the evolution of the project, a distillation of a model for self-direction, and the factors that make such evolution possible are discussed.
