Small Society Lab

Small Society Lab The small society lab, situated in the basement of the DCA, is open from 6th June to 31st July to explore and make use of community centred art, design and technology practice.
Through workshops, designed activities, talks, walks and films we want to crowd-source the inhabitants and businesses of Dundee to explore ways to make small changes to the community we live in and to prototype potential for our digital futures. We aim to put on a mix of workshops to provide new ways for communities and businesses to imagine and enable the future of their city and the digital landscapes we also inhabit.

The lab is a pop-up space for the product design research studio at the University of Dundee, where we are exploring digital products for connecting communities. This summer we want to come out of the university and into the community. Through utilising the accessibility of the DCA and the VRC we hope to be able to work more with communities in Dundee to test theories, explore territories, prototype futures and simulate and stimulate futures with the people we share our city with.
