DATA4CHAN.GE is a workshop where human rights organisations and journalists are paired up with researchers, designers and developers to create data visualisations that can help change the world.



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. It is a truly unique experience, check out our previous and future events.


"Creativity. Hope. Collaboration.

Ideas. Innovation. Change.

Thank you Data4Change for the most inspiring five days of my life."

Yara, Sakker El Dekkene





At the workshop each team created a fully functioning interactive data visualisation prototype on topics such as protest, political prisoners, victims of war and government corruption. It took each group less than five days to create these beautiful and emotive data visualisations. 

Each project has an unique style, treatment and functionality, but what they all have in common is their high quality. Explore the projects below to see what is possible to create in just a few days of collaboration.




Without the support of our generous partners DATA4CHAN.GE would not be possible. Some of the partners help fund the events, others support us with their time and expertise, and some do both.




These friends have been committed to our vision and have helped us grow over the years. They're an amazing bunch of organisations and we love them too!
