THE WORLD IS CHANGING. TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING. STORYTELLING IS CHANGING.
Founded by David Usher, the Human Impact Lab at Concordia University is a creative studio focused on exploring and developing projects and platforms that reimagine how we tell the most important and urgent stories of our time. The Lab works at the intersection of art, technology and data and engages artists, designers, game developers and interactive programmers to visualize solutions to big data social impact problems.
We are an idea accelerator that uses startup methodology to bring social impact ideas to scale. The Human Impact Lab is an independent non-profit supported by Concordia University. We work cross vertically and look for partners in: arts, technology, government, business, education, non-profit. Our focus is awareness building around complex, seismic shift social impact issues; issues like Climate Change and the Second Machine Age (artificial intelligence, robotics and computer automation).
Why are some of the most amazing, innovative storytellers; artists, designers, interactive programmers and game developers not being engaged to tell the most important and urgent story of our time?
