Jockey Club Design Institute For Social Innovation (J.C.DISI)

Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (J.C.DISI) Initiated by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in 2012, Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (J.C.DISI) convenes university expertise, curates cross-disciplinary projects, and constructs partnerships for social well-being and positive systemic change. The Institute’s new home is located at the Jockey Club Innovation Tower, where designers, civic leaders, intellectuals, professionals, and fellow citizens engage in dialogues pertaining to Hong Kong’s future. Being the first design institute dedicating to social innovation in Asia, J.C.DISI focuses on articulating creative and alternative solutions to the complex challenges today - from urban sustainability, ageing population, family and youth, public services, social entrepreneurship to empowering technologies for the disadvantaged. Social Innovation Festival ( 10DAYFEST) is an annual flagship programme organized by J.C.DISI. 10DAYFEST features a variety of exhibitions, workshops, movie screenings, salons, seminars, and lectures under the permanent theme of “design and society.” The community is not only given with the opportunity to learn what social innovation is, but also to co-create and share with local and international designers, thought leaders, activists, researchers, and makers all striving for new perspectives and positive change.
