Nairobi, Nairobi County, Kenya

Description

30 May - 3 June, 2019

Venue: Nairobi Garage

About the event

DATA4CHANGE is a London-based non-profit that connects civil society with global creatives, supporting them to tell stories with data and forge real change. Our flagship events are 5-day residential design sprints based in exciting locations around the world.

Since 2014, more than 200 people from over 40 countries have attended DATA4CHANGE flagship events in London, Beirut, Amman and Kampala. Applications are now open to attend our 2019 event, which will be held at Nairobi Garage. We’re very excited to have Code for Africa on board as our event partner.


What we are looking for

We have held a competitive call for applications to identify and select four civil society organisations working on digital rights, internet freedom and/or freedom of expression online to participate in DATA4CHANGE Nairobi. Now, we've opened the call for applications for designers, developers, and data researchers, analysts, and journalists to join their teams and create prototypes for data driven advocacy projects that have the potential to bring about lasting change.

Download the portfolio checklist to help you prepare your application.

Before submitting your application, please ensure you read our Privacy Policy thoroughly, as you will be asked for your consent to our terms during the application process, and your application cannot be considered without this.


Requirements

We are after people who work as data researchers and analysts, graphic designers, UX designers, web developers and data journalists. Because each creative team only has 4-6 members we are especially fond of people with more than one skill set.

Our events are fast paced, so no matter what role you apply for you need to be someone who thrives under pressure. You also need to love teamwork, because DATA4CHANGE is all about collaboration and skill sharing across borders and disciplines.

The application process is very competitive. On average, more than 20 people apply for each available spot at our design sprints. So make sure to put your best foot forward and spend time on your application. We highly recommend reviewing past events and projects, and watching our video to get a feel for what a DATA4CHANGE event is really like!
