Using immersive challenges, Creative Reaction Lab (CRXLAB), a nonprofit social enterprise, cultivates the creative leadership of civically-minded community members to design to better our cities, schools, business, and society. Our goal? To design solutions creating healthier, safer, and more equitable cities.
CRXLAB was founded in response to the unrest in Ferguson, MO (August 2014) in the form of a 24-hour lab. Today, we have grown to host numerous immersive experiences focused on design thinking and social innovation throughout the nation. Additionally, we have worked with lab teams to activate their solutions within their communities. Visit Vibe Switch, Cards Against Brutality, and Look Beyond Your Fear to learn more about some of these projects.
At Creative Reaction Lab, we are working towards a world where creative leaders serve as the bridge to connect parts of community that are intentionally divided in order to create lasting and innovative solutions for social justice. Join us in our movement to design better ways to live.

We will bring together participants from various sectors and professions to help co-create solutions to community problems.
