More information about the challenge on the CST page.

Goals:

To challenge participants to think critically about mass incarceration, to learn, research and design methodologies to assist them in addressing the issues, long-term implications and solutions and create works that challenge our perception of mass incarceration. We will be partnering with Mass Story Lab, a participatory storytelling project whose workshops include the stories of people directly impacted by mass incarceration. They become the transformative lens through which communities imagine a world beyond prisons.

Objectives:

  • Conduct in depth research that challenges a set of assumptions
  • Rapid prototyping in order to ideate and receive feedback faster
  • Design thinking workshops that expand upon your research
  • 101 technology trainings (learning the 3D printer, MoCap, etc.) that inspire creative solutions
