10DAYFEST features a variety of exhibitions, workshops, movie screenings, salons, seminars, and lectures under the permanent theme of “design and society.” Our community will not only have the opportunity to learn what social innovation is, but also to co-create and share with local and international designers, thought leaders, activists, researchers, and makers all striving for new perspectives and positive change.





Initiated by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (J.C.DISI) convenes university expertise, curates cross-disciplinary projects, and constructs partnerships for social well-being and positive systemic change. The Institute’s new home is located at the Jockey Club Innovation Tower, where designers, civic leaders, intellectuals, professionals, and fellow citizens will engage in dialogues pertaining to Hong Kong’s future. Being the first design institute dedicating to social innovation in Asia, J.C.DISI will focus on articulating creative and alternative solutions to the complex challenges today- from urban sustainability, ageing population, family and youth, public services, social entrepreneurship to empowering technologies for the disadvantaged.
