It's intended that this handbook won't be a static document, but rather a piece of collective infrastructure where developing knowledge from the Canadian labs field can be deposited. It's intended as a shared learning resource. We chose to publish it on GitBook for it's integration with GitHub - the platform that powers the Open Source movement.
This handbook has been developed as a knowledge product of the CONVERGE Canadian Lab Practitioners Exchangehosted by RADIUS SFU in Vancouver June 27-28. 130 lab practitioners and social innovation enablers came together for rich discussions as a field. This handbook contains a synthesis of those conversations, sharing the insights, questions and provocations our team believed would be useful to the Canadian labs field at large.
This handbook would not be possible without the amazing CONVERGE team, our Advisory Group and generous partners.
