SUMMER 2016 PROGRAM

Join us in imagining a world where communities band together to create and fund local projects.  Projects that enrich community spaces, and culture to creating affordable housing, bike lanes, pop-ups exhibits and community centers.

This can be our world and Design Action Lab is the platform with the tools to create it.  Tools that engage communities to create and fund projects, addressing the issues that matter most to them. Learn to leverage your change making skills by using human centered design and social engagement to create impactful solutions.

We are a collaborative community platform here to guide and unite designers, entrepreneurs, leaders, doers and dreamers.

We’re piloting our “Solutions for the Summer 2016” Action-Oriented Design Thinking 8 week Program in Metro-Detroit and interested community members are invited to join us  and get access to attend our summer on Saturdays 4-6pm  from July 9 to August 27th.
