Brooks Design Lab

What is the Brooks Design Lab?

The Brooks Design Lab is a series of fun, friendly, and FREE workshops where we’ll be considering atopic chosen by community leaders and developing exciting ideas together. The topic we’re exploring in this lab is focused on newcomers to Brooks and ways we can all work to bring the community together. Anyone from the community can participate.

These workshops are hosted every other Tuesday, at Medicine Hat College, Brooks Campus from10:30 am to 1:00pm from Tuesday, May - August 22. After that, sessions will be at the same time bi-weekly at the JBS Canada Centre. The Brooks Design Lab will run for 12 workshops, ending Tuesday, October 17th.  

We Need You!

If you’re someone who is passionate about your community and wants to be a part of making it an even better place to live, we’d love for you to join us. We need many community members to help out at the following sessions to provide feedback to our lab participants!


Brooks Design Lab participants will be making their final idea pitches to community - that’s you! Watch and respond to several wonderful presentations of ideas for the future of the Brooks community, and score their ideas to help decide which prototype we will make into a reality in Brooks. Lunch will be provided.
