OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER PEOPLE TO BECOME BETTER CITIZENS AND CONSUMERS OF THE WORLD.





Overview



Design and Source Labs is a a free co-working residency for creative minds. Our goal is to nurture career growth, sustainable thinking, and to rethink how things are made for social good.

Through a semi-annual application process, we select a team of innovative residents from a wide range of fields. This social venture is designed to stimulate personal growth and idea generation, both individually and as a collective.

When talents from different fields come together and challenge one another by working towards a common project, unexpected results can happen. We believe that fostering such an environment can be a game changer for our society.
