The Social Impact Lab Alberta

Brooks Design Lab

What is the Brooks Design Lab?

The Brooks Design Lab was a series of fun, friendly, and FREE workshops where we tackled a challenge selected by the community and developed exciting ideas to address it together. The topic we explored in this lab focused on newcomers to Brooks and ways we can all work to bring the community together. The workshops were hosted every other Tuesday from May - October, 2023. Currently, an action team is working with the community to revise the proposed solution to ensure it is in alignment with community needs and capacity; then, this group will work collaboratively to prototype their idea in Brooks and collect feedback about its success.
