In partnership with Connect313 and College for Creative Studies, Design Core’s City of Design Challenge invites participants to develop community tech hubs to improve access and opportunity in Detroit neighbourhoods.
All eligible teams are invited to submit a proposal outlining who they are, a high-level concept of their vision for a community tech hub, and what they hope to gain through participation in the challenge.
Accepted teams will receive a stipend, access to resources, and participate in a multi-week Inclusive Design Training over the summer to help refine and develop their concepts. Final concepts will be pitched to the public and a jury in October 2021.
Finalists will receive additional funds to test their concept and document the process, showcasing results the following year during Detroit Month of Design and the Cumulus Conference in Fall 2022.
