International Design Clinic Incoprorated

The International Design Clinic is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to realizing much-needed creative work with communities in need around the world.


Since its inception in 2006, the IDC has completed dozens of socially-responsive creative works around the world. In each case, the work produced was the product of an intensely collaborative creative address, based upon persistent or emergent situations and undervalued, indigenous materials and resources. In so doing, the IDC aligns our motivations, means and methods with those of our community partners, ensuring that those with whom we work are well positioned to possess and evolve the offered work long after we have left. Instead of a fish, the IDC offers not teachings, but a creative process through which we could collaborate with those in need to create new poles, raise new fish, and craft new teachings.
