We are always astounded by the innovation and creativity that gets expressed in such a short time. Each team at a DATA4CHAN.GE workshop explores the dataset of a grassroots CSO, while they work alongside them to bring to life the stories within their statistics.
Every project has a strong story to tell. Click the screens below to explore what's possible to achieve at a DATA4CHAN.GE workshop, and, if you're inspired to put your own skills to good use, why not apply to attend one of our workshops.
If applications to attend are currently open, you'll see a link in the header of our website!
