C/Change R&D Lab Information Session
April 6, 2022
As turbulent geopolitical circumstances and a global pandemic threaten to entrench divisions, the need for cultural exchange–or spaces where people can encounter and learn from ideas different from their own–is more apparent than ever. C/Change, a new initiative from the Goethe-Institut San Francisco and Gray Area, investigates how emerging technologies, when imbued with intentional design, can open up new channels for cross-cultural connection in a changing world.
C/Change invites interdisciplinary individuals and teams around the globe to submit concepts for prototypes that utilize emerging technologies to enable cultural exchange. Accepted applicants will receive up to $20,000 to develop a high-fidelity platform, tool, or experience, as well as expand their skill sets and join a community of design futurists through regular virtual workshops and meetings.
