Women's Project Launched

Tactical Tech's new project Visualising Women's Rights in the Arab World aims to strengthen the use of visual techniques amongst women’s rights activists in the Arab World. This project will focus on three core visual techniques, information design, mapping, and imaging and animation. Visualising Women's Rights in the Arab World consists of three components:


  • researching and publishing inspiring and relevant examples of visualisations on the project blog to build a strong resource for participating NGOs and general readers 
  • a hands-on training workshop with selected applicants, in Jordan, 5-8 December 2010 follow-up mentoring and micro-grants to support ten visual campaigns that result from the workshop. 


Tactical Tech invites applications for participation from women’s rights activists and NGOs in the Arab region working on issues of violence against women, the impact and role of women in political and violent conflict and women’s participation and leadership in public life. We also welcome communications specialists, designers, artists, illustrators, or technologists working with mapping techniques or data who can support women's rights activists. 25 applicants will be selected to attend the launch workshop in Jordan in December.


The workshop will provide three tracks to participants: mapping, information design, and imaging and animation. Participants will have to bring a campaign idea which will be developed over the course of three days. Of these, ten campaigns will be supported to implementation by Tactical Tech into 2011.
