Resident Co-Lab data dots

In collaboration with diverse Detroit residents, The Work Department developed a set of values to inform the overall vision for the Detroit UNESCO City of Design initiative, led by Design Core Detroit. Created in our workshops and facilitated conversations with Detroiters from all walks of life, the values unify future partners around common goals. Our inclusive process focused on conversations around the "good life" and asked residents to imagine how design can improve quality of life for all Detroiters.

The values that Detroiters co-created are: diverse experiences to broaden our horizons, collaborative relationships to bring us together, and accessible opportunities to invite participation.
