DATA4CHAN.GE brings talented people in the visual storytelling community together with human rights organisations that have fascinating original datasets and powerful stories to tell.
We started DATA4CHAN.GE in 2014 and run at least one event per year. The workshops are attended by brave human rights defenders, journalists and creatives from all over the world. During our workshops interdisciplinary teams of data researchers, coders, UX designers, graphic designers, journalists and human rights organisations create data visualisations and devise innovative advocacy strategies.
We tailor the training programme to suit all participants and make sure everyone leaves the workshop feeling inspired and armed with brand new skills to help them do effective data driven advocacy or journalism in the future.
The atmosphere at the workshops are inclusive, supportive and positive, and those who attend become part of a very unique alumni, who remain in contact via a private Slack channel, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
