In collaboration with Hacks/Hackers, Code for South Africa and the African Media Initiative (AMI), we are organising two events in Johannesburg and Cape Town this Friday, 11 April. The event will showcase simple tools and data sources that empower citizens, activists and civic watchdogs, plus organisations like the media to hold those in power to account. We and AMI offer small grants (up to R200,000) to individuals and organisations working in this space, so come along if you’d like to learn more and meet likeminded people.
The Johannesburg meetup will take place at Jozihub, at 44 Stanley, at 6.30pm on Friday, 11 April 2014.
The Cape Town meetup will take place at Codebridge, at 6.30pm on Friday night, 11 April 2014.
Hacks/Hackers will provide pizzas and beer/wine/softdrinks at both events.
