Open Call | Tactical Technology Collective Residency, Montenegro

Application deadline: 17 May

Residency with Tactical Technology Collective to create the first ever Citizen Investigation Toolkit. We are living in a world saturated with information, data and evidence. With this residency, the organisers want to explore, collect, develop, test and document open source investigation tools and techniques anyone can use to help uncover corruption and abuses of power online and off.

The outcomes of the residency will be developed into The Citizen Investigation Toolkit, the first in a series dedicated to making investigations in digital and analogue environments accessible to everyone.

In a nutshell:

What?: A 10-day event to produce the first Citizen Investigation Toolkit focused on evidence-gathering for those passionate about digital and non-digital investigations.
Who?: Experienced evidence explorers, citizen investigators, journalists, researchers, developers, activists, artists and others working to uncover social and political issues such as corruption, environmental and social injustice, conflicts, human rights violations and abuse of power.
When?: 1-11 July 2018
Where?: Montenegro, in a beautiful medieval location by the sea
Organizer: Tactical Technology Collective

The organisers are looking for 12 people from across the world with different backgrounds and skills who are interested in documenting their experience using tools and techniques to carry out investigations. They need experienced data handlers, technologists, investigators, activists, artists, and researchers who have a proven track record of finding and collecting digital and non-digital evidence in innovative ways.

Selection: The organisers have a limited number of places. Tactical Tech will conduct the selection of applicants. They will choose participants based on overall diversity, skill-base and experience. They will also make the selection on the basis of everyone’s ability to both gain from and contribute to the residency.

Cost: The organisers will cover travel, accommodation and visa costs for selected participants.
