About the event

The 2024 Detroit Design Jam takes place annually during the Detroit Month of Design. 

Open to manufacturers, makers, limb-loss community members, designers of all disciplines and levels, students, creative problem-solvers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts, this design-sprint style workshop centers around concepting and prototyping adaptive products for outdoor recreation. 


The event is comprised of two sessions, participants are expected to commit fully to both sessions.

Virtual Intro Session: Friday, September 6: 4-6:30PM

Hands-on, In-person Session: Saturday, September 7: 8AM-5PM

The Design Jam  shifts product innovation to a collective and open space - one where all types of voices influence the process. 

For this two-part, hands-on design and prototyping challenge, participants will be broken up into to six multidisciplinary teams of 8-10 individuals. 

Teams will be curated to ensure representation from student, faculty and professional designers, manufacturers, makers and entrepreneurs, business coaches, and end users from the limb loss community. 

Design Jam collaboratively brings together interdisciplinary teams to:

  • Inspire innovation within the region's manufacturing sector; 
  • Catalyze collaborations between designers and manufacturers in the Metro Detroit region; 
  • Create solutions for recreational athletes with limb loss; 
  • Initiate relationships between designers, manufacturers, makers, service providers, and end-users
