DS4SI Action Lab @ Roots & Remedies Conference in NOLA

 

We set up our first "pop-up studio" for the Roots & Remedies conference in New Orleans this past weekend. The conference brought together over 200 organizers to think about transformative community organizing and policy work towards creating healthy, just communities.

We invited them into a creative design space and challenged them to think both linearly and nonlinearly about creating effective social interventions and cultural tactics that could support their organizing work.

Here was our Action Lab design tool before...

And after...

Other folks got more 3D with it on our less linear tables...

We'll post more photos and videos when we get home. Many thanks to all our visitors, volunteers and to The Praxis Project for inviting us!
