Commitment to Action

Leveraging Music as a Tool for Social Good

Commitment by

Insight Labs

In 2012, Insight Labs committed to convene leading user experience designers (UX designers) from across the U.S. to construct models for leveraging music to address critical challenges affecting the music community in New Orleans. Through this initiative, the UX designers' unique skills and perspective will be applied to the greater good - in this case, making use of music which is an abundant and treasured resource in the host city. In addition to engaging UX designers, Insight Labs committed to identifying organizations working in urban communities who will participate in the development, construction, and strengthening of the designers' work. Ultimately, the novel models developed by the UX designers will be handed off to an experienced organization for implementation.
