INSIGHT

INSIGHT 

makes available the diverse knowledge of project leaders, participants, initiatives, communities and experts to address current developments and issues for discussion. Projects are considered in their future life cycle to understand their impact and to improve future projects. This page offers a collection of exchanges that are helping to shape perspectives and understanding in the space of community-based design practices.

The implementation to the dbXchange platform was possible due to a generous support of the STO Stiftung.

DCGN Budapest Exhibition 2023

Agency, empowerment, impact: these characteristics distinguish the work featured in the Design for the Common Good International Exhibition. In its first international venue outside of the United States, the Design for the Common Good Network, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Budapest Metropolitan University Faculty of Art and Creative Industries are pleased to present this curated collection of thirty-two projects from six continents and twenty-three countries. Established by the Design for the Common Good Network in Denver, Colorado (2022) as the parent exhibition, today the exhibition travels with added peer-reviewed or curator-invited projects that build the collection.

Ger Innovation Hub

The Ger Innovation Hub provides much-needed community infrastructure to residents living in the ger districts of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The project is the first of its kind: a community center that does not directly involve the government and is independently funded and managed. In a place with limited basic spaces and a culture that has no word for “community,” the project aims to enable residents to construct a community identity.
