Apps due Dec 1 @data4change workshop in Beirut

Join the next @data4change workshop in Beirut! Apply now to visualise #dataforgood

WHEN: 21 – 25 February 2018
Applications close: 1 December 2017

This year we’re shaking things up a little and moving the 2018 instalment of our flagship 5-day DATA4CHAN.GE Beirut workshop to the amazing antwork co-working space. This year there are three application forms to choose from, so please read the descriptions carefully before choosing your stream. If you have any questions, we’re just an email away.

The application process is incredibly competitive. For our most recent workshop, more than 500 people applied for just 30 spaces. Be sure to put your best foot forward and spend time on your applications, so that we can really understand who you are. We highly recommend reviewing past events and projects to get a feel for how we do things at a DATA4CHAN.GE workshop. Our team carefully reads and reviews every single application we receive.

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. During our workshops interdisciplinary teams consisting of data researchers, coders, UX designers, graphic designers and human rights organisations (HROs) create data visualisations and devise innovative advocacy strategies. DATA4CHAN.GE is a workshop where HROs and the creative sector can collaborate to create data visualisations aimed at elevating public engagement and effective advocacy, which in turn could bring about real positive change.

Applications are now open, and will close on 1 December 2017. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
