YOU’RE INVITED TO PDX:SP19
The Social Impact Lab is coming to Portland for the second time this spring for a two-month design marathon focused on making a difference in a local Portland community through social impact design.
Portland-area professionals will be working in teams to design around a specific challenge inspired by our exciting partnership with Portland Fire and Rescue. Teams will work closely together to research, ideate, design, build and test solutions in response to a specific design challenge.
Formal lab events will help lab participants get familiarized with foundational impact design principles, self-guided and team-based activities will give participants a chance to put what they are learning into practice, and key milestones will keep teams on track in order to contribute a thoughtful response by the end of the lab.
In addition, the Social Impact Lab has worked closely with Portland Fire & Rescue to co-host several pre-lab events focused on co-creating specific design challenge(s) for lab participants:
Formal lab participation by application only. Design experience not required.
