Social Design Field Lab
Jan 2022 – Nov 2022
An interdisciplinary research team developed an adaptable, design-process-based methodology that can contribute to the advancement of creative competences of children coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Field lab based workshops were organized at the Máltai Presence House in Zalakomár in the form of a Hackathon, where students, researchers and participating local children were experimenting with various design approaches and they created new values together.
An immersive, fieldwork focused summer university was organized in Zalakomár’ Máltai Presence House where students and teachers of MOME and colleagues of Máltai Charity conducted participative and co-design based workshop series with local kids of vulnerable background.
Oct 2022 – Nov 2022
The temporary Social Design Field Lab exhibition presented the research process, as well as the fieldwork-based educational situations implemented in Zalakomár, where several disciplines (architecture, media design, animation, product design, textile design) were represented.
Jun 2023 - Dec 2023
In 2023, we are testing and further developing the methodology in the form of a two-day long summer hackathon, followed by numerous workshops during the autumn and a course week with students, where they have the opportunity to work on the ideas and directions already listed during the summer hackathon.
