"OPEN LaB" InvestiAMOsociale | FIRST EDITION 2022-2023
SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT
“OPEN LaB” by re.leg.art.
With OPEN LaB we wanted to link the past (experience, profession, projects) with the present (real needs and answers to questions) and the future (our Art that marries Innovation).
The Project provides for the opening and setting up of a Laboratory with a Shop inside (here it is the hiring of a disabled person is foreseen for the duration of the project with the possibility of renewal).
Transparency. Everyone who enters: customers, suppliers, family members can see the kids working and interact with them. The project is full of relationships because the main innovation is to collaborate with the Department of Environmental Engineering of the University of Perugia – Course in Design (Tutors: Prof. Picciotti and Prof. Belardi). University students, professors will take turns creating new products together with us and the 8 disabled persons (direct beneficiaries) a “OPEN LaB” brand. A new line.
The purchase of new innovative machines will facilitate the manufacturing processes of the leather, the fabrics. The recycling of materials and the use of non-toxic products will have priority in our processes working.
The goal is to generate Wellbeing for the person, to bring out the Beauty and the Good that is inside each of us through work which is surely a source of dignity.
Create products, advertise them, sell them.
These goals will drive forward our future.
All this will be made possible thanks to the contribution of the Contest "InvestiaAMOsociale" , promoted by the Perugia Foundation and UniCredit in collaboration with the Italian Accenture Foundation, with the involvement of partners Human Foundation, Confcooperative, Legacoop Umbria, Cesvol Umbria and with the scientific support of AICCON (Italian Association for the Promotion of the Culture of Cooperation and Nonprofit)
