A community powered accelerator at the intersection of design + social innovation. A space for people who want justice, equity and sustainability — now.

An opportunity to explore, understand and connect. #NYC #SF

HOW

  • FLOX LABs – a monthly community based design sprint dinner series. Hosted in New York City and San Francisco, these intimate events provide space for designers, social impact practitioners and curious citizens to explore ideas and dream together. This generative community building opportunity has engaged 150 people in the last six months alone.

  • Special Events & Partnerships – Immersive site specific events done in partnership with social impact organizations. For example, FLOX FARM is a new convening in upstate New York with the Farms Arts Collective that will explore ways to build a thriving creative arts market in a rural community. FLOX also partners with organizations like Design For America to engage their audience using FLOX design practices.

  • Products & Resources – On a monthly basis FLOX produces “What the FLOX?” a newsletter highlighting trends in the social impact design and strategy space. In addition FLOX is working on a series of workplace board games as an innovation to increase the operational efficacy of mission driven enterprises.

  • Consulting Services - FLOX collective members also work to sustain themselves and the collective by providing consulting services in the areas of design, strategy and sustainable community building to mission driven organizations.
