Info-activism camp 2013
In the hills of northern Italy, 135 people from 45 countries came together for Tactical Tech's 'Info-Activism Camp 2013: Evidence & Influence', from June 23-30.
The morning tracks were two-hour long daily sessions on four inter-related approaches to working with information for advocacy: Investigation, Documentation, Curation and Intervention. They laid down the building blocks for working with evidence for influence, giving advice on strategy, sharing participant experiences and developing new approaches together. Each participants chose to attend one track throughout the week. Read more >>
