LET'S TRY SOMETHING NEW!
WHAT: DATA4CHAN.GE JORDAN
WHEN: 29 JULY - 2 AUGUST 2018
Applications close: 25 June 2018
We've got new digs!! We're excited to announce that applications are now open for our second workshop of 2018 in none other than Amman, Jordan.
DATA4CHAN.GE brings talented people in the visual storytelling community together with civil society organisations that have fascinating original datasets and powerful stories to tell.
Perks: DATA4CHAN.GE covers travel and accommodation expenses for all international participants (although participants are responsible for purchasing their own travel insurance). International participants are also provided a modest per diem to cover additional in-country expenses such as taxis and food.
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. On average, more than 20 people apply for each available space at one of our workshops. 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.
During our workshops interdisciplinary teams consisting of data researchers, coders, UX designers, graphic designers and civil society organisations (CSOs) create data visualisations and devise innovative advocacy strategies. DATA4CHAN.GE is a workshop where CSO 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 Monday, 25 June 2018. Applications received after this date will not be considered. Our team carefully reads and reviews every single application received. DATA4CHAN.GE is a committed equal opportunity provider.
Have you attended a DATA4CHAN.GE workshop before? Are you interested in applying to lead one of the creative teams.
It doesn't matter whether you're a designer, developer, journalist, or data geek. What's important is that you are an experienced and confident leader, who can steer a small group of people to produce a great campaign in the D4C pressure cooker!
You won't be on your own, we'll be there to support, but you do need to have some project management experience, and that's what we'd like to hear about in your application form!

Do you work for a cutting edge Jordan-based non-profit organisation that collects original data on economic, social, or political rights?
Would you like to see the inner workings of a dream team of creative geniuses while they work with your material and expert knowledge to create an advocacy campaign?
If that wasn't enough, while that magic is happening, you'd be creating some of your own. We design a core training curriculum just for you, and by the end of the workshop you'll be able to collect, store, clean, analyse, and visualise data using a variety of cool and free tools.

Are you a graphic designer, frontend web developer, journalist, researcher, data analyst, or data visualisation expert? Then we might be looking for you!
If you're selected to attend DATA4CHAN.GE, you'll work with your team to create a data driven campaign using frontline data gathered by the civil society organisation you've been matched with.
Throughout the workshop you'll share your skills and knowledge with other participants, and make lifelong connections with our global network of changemakers.
