The Tactical Technology Collective invites young people to apply and be Tactical Tech’s next digital activist-in-residence, from September to November 2016. The residency is designed to support activists from Latin America, Africa, Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus or the Middle East, who utilise digital technologies extensively in their work. Deadline to apply is July 3rd.

Tactical Tech is a non-profit organisation based in Berlin, working since 2003 to advance the use of information and digital technologies by advocates and activists worldwide.

The residency is part of a project launched by the Tactical Technology Collective and Reporters without Borders Germany, meant to strengthen Berlin as a hub for a creative community that can inspire change around the world. Tactical Tech will host two residents simultaneously. In parallel, Reporters Without Borders will host a residency for a journalist.

During the residency period of September to November 2016 organizers will be working on a number of projects including continued research and development on new investigation techniques on Sonic Investigation and Seeing from Above, looking at how to integrate digital security into investigation workflows and lastly the continued testing of Littlespoon, a tool that captures public data for investigation purposes. There is also room for selected residents to work within our framework on their own investigations and interest areas.

Main criteria:

 

  • Applicants should be from Latin America, Africa, Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Eastern Europe or the Middle East;
  • Be confident working in English;
  • Use digital technologies extensively in work;
  • Have a good knowledge of digital technologies (the internet, mobile phones etc) and their challenges and implications for freedom of information or advocacy work in your own context;
  • Be willing to act as a multiplier and further spread the knowledge you gathered during the residency in your home region

Participation is fully funded. As the resident, you will be provided with support in your visa application process.
