DSGN Innovation Hub Scheme In Bali-min
Design Student Global Network (DSGN) officially launches its first international design competition! The winning proposal – an Innovation Hub development scheme for a rural community site in Bali, Indonesia – will be built during their first workshop in early 2019. The hub will be used to teach skills classes for community development and social entrepreneurship. Individuals or multidisciplinary teams of students and recent graduates, freelance or professional, can participate in this international design competition; which aims to tackle this pressing problem
“Mass tourism is stealing opportunities from rural areas, forcing income required migration and eroding culture in the process. To combat this, innovators are creating maker’s collectives, social impact groups, and interdisciplinary networks in the rural areas. But, these rural areas lack the systems and structures required to sustain these groups.”
As international tourism becomes ever more prevalent in Bali, the opportunities it can offer those coming from rural areas are hard to ignore. As a result, west Bali in particular has seen a migration of young and talented members of its community to these more populous areas as many do not see any other viable options for work. This is an issue DSGN wish to tackle by providing west Bali with certain systems and structures it requires. In association with international design workshop MEDS (Meeting of Design Students) – DSGN invite all to join in questioning this trend and taking the first step in providing the support needed.
DSGN challenge you, through your approach to design and research interpretation of Balinese traditions, to develop a primary learning centre and grounds which will form the heart of the innovation hub – helping to provide the systems required to enable a more self-reliant future.

Finalists will have the opportunity to have their proposals represented at DSGN’s international exhibition at Milan Design Week 2018, represented across DSGN and MEDS platforms and future conferences and events, and be given advance opportunity to participate in MEDS Byblos 2018 international design workshop. The winner will also receive the opportunity to accompany the DSGN team to Bali in early 2019 to see out the construction of the winning proposal. DSGN encourage all students and recent graduates, whether practicing as design firms, policymakers or freelancers to participate in this worldwide collaboration. There is no limit on nationalities or fields of study. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help create this sustainable architectural design – and leave a positive impact on our global community.
