We’re proud to announce the launch of ACT Labs, our open platform promoting human rights innovation.
Labs are our unique events that explore the intersection of human rights, art and technology, and develop a range of solutions. We have run Labs on issues ranging from women’s rights, freedom of speech, LGBTQ+ rights, environmental protection, to the shrinking space for civil society.
In Labs, teams of artists and technologists work together over a weekend to prototype ideas that raise awareness or provide solutions for a specific social justice problem. The resulting ideas contribute to flipping the narrative on these issues.
Now we’re democratising the format so that anyone who wishes to explore this approach can do so. We provide the step-by-step guidelines and support on how to organize your own ACT Labs, and use technology and art for social change.
If you’re interested in organising an event in your city, see how at actlabs.co. You can apply to host our own ACT Labs on an issue of your choice or you can browse the many ideas already generated during past ACT Labs editions.
