Reimagine Lab: Preventing cycles of violence, now and into the future

The application period for this funding opportunity has closed.

We first shared that the Foundation was launching a design lab to develop new solutions for preventing domestic violence in February of 2018. Reimagine Lab was an experiment to bring together leaders from within and outside of the domestic violence field to consider the complex issues surrounding domestic violence and engage in a generative process to co-design dynamic solutions with a prevention mindset. Sixteen fellows applied a human-centered design approach that centered those most affected to ground the prevention innovations.

Human-centered design is disruptive on purpose. It is intended to question the status quo and ask bold questions. As Lab fellow Sharon Turner said, “You can’t solve today’s problems with yesterday’s experiments.” Fellows questioned prevailing assumptions about victims and those who do harm, as well as challenging the single-story narrative to explore new solutions to address the multi-generational cycle of domestic violence. 

We are to pleased share the Reimagine Lab Learning Report, which offers an in-depth look at the intention of the lab, the ideas resulting from it, and the lessons learned along the way.  We also invite you to watch a new recap video and to read a new Reimagine Lab blog, which lists some of the lessons we've learned.   We hope you’ll continue to join us on the journey to break the cycle of domestic and family violence.

The learning report, video, and blogs linked below share the intention behind the lab, the ideas that resulted from it, and the lessons we have learned on this journey.
