Design can bring about positive change through collaboration and conversation within defined communities. goodgood seeks to facilitate such positive growth through education, dialogue and outreach, and by fostering opportunities for creative exchange.
To teach is to learn. Our studio has collectively taught at Tufts, the Museum School, Clark, the Art Institute of Boston, RISD, Cornell, and Virginia Commonwealth University. We believe that design thinking and process aids in educational development.
With that, design education should begin at an early age, and it should be inclusive. goodgood engages students through mentoring, workshops, field trips and guest lectures and by supporting organizations like Youth Design, 826 and the design education initiative.
Design is a dialogue. goodgood cultivates this dialogue in dynamic and positive ways, by working with the communities which we inhabit, from micro to macro.
We are currently working on several projects in Boston, including the goodfilm festival, and a community-based campaign in Mission Hill. Individually, the goodgood team has worked with communities in India, Nepal, the U. K., and other areas around the U.S. Check out one recent project that we collaborated on, SHOP RVA in Richmond, Virginia.
The arts are an integral part of a healthy vibrant community. Our studio champions the arts by creating forums for creative exchange encouraging members of the community to both engage and interact.
goodgood curated the print-based exhibit Word Play, which is currently traveling from Michigan, to Richmond, and then on to Boston. If you are interested in hosting Word Play, drop us a line!
We also organize the goodfilm festival, a nomadic community-based project, which brings good films to community centers, parks and schools.
