LOUDLabs are a way for us to create a fun, empowering and engaging open dialogue so that workshop participants are able to fully express themselves in ways that are not usually supported by typical school curriculum. Most LOUDLabs participants are marginalized youth who normally don't have access to modern tools and techinques. Although sometimes the most simple workshop elements provide the largest impact both for participants and facilitators because while each LOUDLab is tailored for specific locations and participants, the goal is to have fun while learning about each other.
We also include the community as much as possible during LOUDLab visits because we aim to gather local wisdom such as social and agricultural practices which we want to document and share with the world as well as integrating a sharing of information between elders and children of the community.
