Dear members of the OGP Community,
I have just joined the list. I work for the Tactical Technology
Collective, based in Berlin, from where I lead a project looking at
civic space and how technology and data influences our activism and
right to freedom of assembly and association.

We do training and workshops focusing on data and privacy but also on
how technology can help people manage data, investigate and use it for
their campaigning and evidence based advocacy.

In this last area, I would like to share a call for applications for an
event, the Data Investigation Camp -to take place in July, deadline on
May 29.

All the info and link for applications is below.
************
Tactical Tech has opened the call for applications for its first ever
"Data Investigation Camp", for experienced evidence explorers, data
critics and data storytellers working on social/political issues such as
*corruption*, accountability and transparency, environmental and social
justice, human rights, and abuses of power.

Especially useful to organisations or people using data for evidence
based campaigning.

The event will take place from 19-24 July 2017 in an old port town in
Montenegro.

Applicants from all over the world are accepted -the deadline is May 29.
Those selected will be eligible for funding of their costs.

The Data Investigation Camp will bring 50 people together to focus on
how we can use this data to understand and expose misconduct and abuses
of power within a human rights, investigative journalism and
anti-corruption framework.

This event is specifically designed for participants who already have
existing experience using data to tell stories and change narratives
through proven and successful projects.

We plan to share practical knowledge, techniques, methodologies, tools
and skills on data investigations. From collecting to analysing to
visualising data, we will look at working with closed and open, small
and big, personal and public data. We will work together to explore new
techniques, share skills, push boundaries and build on the existing
knowledge, skill, and experience of our community while including new
voices.

Come with a project, get inspired by others and learn new skills and
techniques. We will push the boundaries of data led evidence gathering,
share practical techniques, spark friction, explore difficult dilemmas
and build networks.

More details and link to the application form can be found here

Please feel free to share! Remember, the deadline is May 29th.

Best regards
Andrea
