The Design Studio for Social Intervention was founded in January 2005. For the 2005-2006 academic year the studio was incubated within the Center for Reflective Community Practice in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. DS4SI is located on Washington Street in Roxbury and has fiscal sponsorship provided by Third Sector New England.


In this video from Justin Francese, Kenny Bailey touches on the two major events that brought him to founding DS4SI, the ideas that arose from them, and their continued impact on the Studio's work today.
