A couple of years ago, French designer "Social Design Club" led a design lab in Lalibela with young people from humble backgrounds.

A couple of years ago, French designer "Social Design Club" led a design lab in Lalibela with young people from humble backgrounds. By the end of the training, the participants were gifted with concrete tools on how to produce a set of office furniture intended to inspire intellectual activity and creative thinking. The three trained students are now manufacturing these items and making a living out of it.

« Design Social Club » will present this residency and share with us in what ways design can be a very powerful tool for social change and provide with economic opportunities.

The students from Lalibela will also be with us, happy to answer all your questions.
