Holy Design Union is a collection of ideas, experiments, speculations and designs on the subject of unionising workforces. Holy Design Union acknowledges that the power of a union lies not in the concept of the organisation, but in real action and physical stuctures and communities they are both able to produce and protect. As a concept, the Holy Design Union addresses the loss of the role for unions in contemporary working landscapes, and aims to relocate it.

Holy Design Union specifically looks at the polarity in modern society today between education and professionalism, in which design as a craft, practice and theory is reduced to a paid service in a society in which markets dictate our relevance. Within this jump lies a huge space for validated forms of human activity, in which Holy Design Union aims to explore in an attempt to reshift the capitalist narrative of work.

As a union, Holy Design Union is not yet an official organisation. Rather, it focus lies on exploring where and how a union could become relevant in todays society. All content found on Holy Design Union is free to use, disseminate and appropriate for non-profit purposes, in an effort to continue to locate the role for unions in our global societies.
