Using information and digital technologies to create positive change

December 5, 2013 § Leave a comment

In this blogpost I’m just posting a blurb for an event that took place in 2009 at SOAS, because the content of the blurb (especially the links) might be of interest to me and/or readers. I’m posting it now because I was searching through my email inbox for something else and this popped up and seemed of interest. I actually never made it to the event but have, since then, encountered the Tactical Tech Collective at a workshop on Open Data that I attended last year in Chennai. Anyways.

Thursday 5th November, SOAS Junior Common Room 7pm:

 

Using information and digital technologies to create positive change

 

10 tactics for turning information into action includes stories from

more than 35 rights advocates around the world who have successfully

used information and digital technologies to create positive change.

This project, from Tactical Technology Collective, includes a film

featuring 25 interviews with advocates alongside a deck of cards that

details info-activism case studies, features tools and provides advice

from people about the tactics and tools they have used in different

contexts.

 

At this event parts of the film will be screened for the first time.

The audience will be engaged in a conversation that asks: Are digital

tools changing activism? What are digital activists doing and is it

making a difference? What are the risks and benefits of digital

activism?

 

Tanya Notley from Tactical Tech will introduce the project and explain

how it came about.

 

Tessa Lewin from the IDS at the University of Sussex will explain how

she uses animation as a force for change in Egypt with the Women and

Memory Forum (http://www.wmf.org.eg/)

 

Muzna Al-Masri an activist from Lebanon talks about the work of

Solidarity Maps in addressing rights abuses in Lebanon and Palestine
