We are now recruiting 12 Lab Fellows to join the co-creation of grounded innovations for vibrant public market!

Come work as a team with FEHD staff members, Social Lab initiators and passionate citizens to explore human-centric public market design and policies.

Lab work includes a series of workshops, as well as field research, interviews, brainstorming sessions and making the prototypes together. Fellows will also work closely with tenants and residents with diverse background as an integral part of the ethnographic data collection, ideation and prototype processes, as well as to brainstorm creative ideas and co-design for the wider community.

Why join as Fellows?

What do you need to do?
