Join us for an one day action packed Design Jam. Together with talented creatives, you will work with the NGO Ushahidi to improve their crisis-messaging app TenFour. Together we will explore the future of peer to peer crisis management in danger zones around the world.

The Mission:

During this day we prototype how we intend to help groups in crisis scenarios to stay safe, help each other and avoid unnecessary risks. Working in small groups coached by experienced designers from Ushahidi and Designit, actionable prototypes will be created by the end of the jam. Erik Hersman, co-founder of Ushahidi and CEO of BRCK, will be part of our jury and together they select the prize-winning team that features the best design.

About:

Ushahidi was developed to map reports of violence in Kenya after the post-election violence in 2008. Ushahidi has become a social enterprise and technology leader in Africa, headquartered in Nairobi, with a global team. TenFour is built to be the easiest to use emergency check in application. It was developed by Ushahidi in response to the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi. We built TenFour so no organization would fail to reach their team in a crisis.

Designit is a global strategic design firm, part of the leading technology company, Wipro. Our vision is to make a human-shaped world, where everything is designed around real human needs. Designit is partnering up with Ushahidi to empower people in Africa and around the world through technology, especially in situations of crisis and danger.

Adobe is changing the world through digital experiences. Their creative, marketing and document solutions empower everyone — from emerging artists to global brands — to bring digital creations to life and deliver them to the right person at the right moment for the best results. Adobe XD is Ushahidi’s preferred production tool and will be used to create the interactive prototypes presented to the jury at the end of this DesignJam.

Requirements:

All participants must bring their own laptop and chargers with the free Adobe XD software installed before the jam. Video will be filmed over the full day to be used by the presenting companies Ushahidi, Designit and Adobe for further external communication during the event. Participants are in consent with their activities being videotaped and shown as part of the resulting material.

We are kindly hosted at Mindspace (Rooftop Event Area)
