About CareLab: Creating Futures for Care

Evolving social norms, demographic changes, political and racial unrest, and environmental crises have shifted how families, neighbors, workplace colleagues, and diverse citizens engage with and care for each other. This hands-on art + design strategy learning lab invites students to boldly re-imagine and prototype economies, neighborhoods, organizations and families to prioritize relations and care. What services, artistic interventions, digital currencies, housing, technologies, creative placemaking strategies, and futures will emerge? Open to cross-university graduate students and upper undergraduates by permission. Studio, performance, media, and other creative making experience desirable.
