We Manufacture Perspectives!
Cloudfactory is a creative innovation center
Directed by local kids, living in poverty
In collaboration with young designers
Cloudfactory is a social design workshop, where kids living in extreme poverty can work together with young designers, fashion designers, architects, photographers and graphic artists in Bódva Valley, one of the poorest regions of Hungary, Central-Eastern Europe.
Anything can be produced in the Cloudfactory: children furniture, pothole proof skateboards or collapsible herb garden, following the needs of the kids. It can produce personal career plans and future perspectives for communities. It helps to create brave young people, poor and not poor, designers and non-designers, who dare to face social problems.
The project is initiated by MOME EcoLab, the sustainability research group of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME), in partnership with the local primary school of Bódvaszilas. Cloudfactory is an experiment to open new perspectives in changing social problems with the power of creativity and design thinking.
