Workshops

Innovating Justice Procedures
How can we design new justice procedures for reaching fair solutions for family or employment issues? HiiL’s interactive workshop explores how feelings, stress, chaos, and anger can be addressed by looking at what the needs are and then designing from there.

Data in Crisis
As much as data offers new opportunities, it also poses new risks in humanitarian work due to the vulnerability of the affected people. HumanityX and International Data Responsibility Group (IDRG) explain how to leverage the value of data while preventing harm.

Organisational Ambidexterity
Organisations need to perform innovation activities on two levels: exploiting the existing value proposition and exploring new ones. The Center for Innovation calls this an ambidextrous organization and shares its insights on how large organizations can make innovation work.

Barriers and opportunities for the labor participation of refugee women
Only a disproportionately small amount of female refugees have successfully entered the Dutch labor market. She Matters invites you to join an inclusive discussion on the barriers and opportunities for the labor participation of refugee women. Special guests include organizations and the women who have lived these realities.

In the Makerspace
Can we build a prototype of an open source air monitoring device for outdoor usage by citizens in urban areas within 9 weeks? Wunderpeople is up to the challenge. You can join them in the Makerspace for this first program and we are eager to hear your ideas for future programs.

Innovation Connected
Discuss your innovative ideas and visions with a group of fresh minds! DCHI is providing you with the opportunity to meet new people during a speed dating session and discuss possible collaborations in smaller groups during the breakout sessions.

Connecting science, art, and audiences: towards new innovations in knowledge production
This workshop includes a performance and a brainstorm with the audience about innovations in science-art collaboration. Workshop organizers: Sjoerd Sijsma (Voice4Thought), Kim de Vries (Bridging Humanities) and Barbara Gwanmesia (singer, writer, magazine publisher).


Exhibitions

Did Evil Win? Klaas van Dijken, award-winning journalist and co-founder of Lighthouse Reports
“Did evil win?” is the question that journalists Klaas Van Dijken and Adriane Ohanesian asked themselves, and the world, after they illegally visited Darfur in 2015 and saw that the war and the brutal regime are still going strong. Their shocking material has been transformed into a captivating interactive online documentary: www.didevilwin.com. Klaas will be at the opening to tell you more about the background and making of the documentary, his trip, and the current situation on the ground.

Home, brought to you by Movies that Matter
What if the refugee journey were reversed? Daniel Mulloy’s award-winning “Home” is a 20-min short is intimate and thought-provoking, making its audience deeply consider the plight of the many migrant families, all over the world, looking for a better life. http://www.homefilm.org/press/

Barbara Gwanmesia is a Cameroonian singer, writer, magazine publisher, and social entrepreneur living in the Netherlands. Having worked extensively with major American and Dutch producers and musicians, her music is an expression of her social and humanitarian concerns.

Mechanik is an art installation by Panagiotis Tomaras using data from spherical coordinates to transform a real sphere with video projection into an abstract floating object. Panagiotis is a video and light artist working with a variety of analogue and digital mediums that further investigate the visual experience through video projections, light installations, and photography.

Humanity House’s podcast-booth allows you to listen to the stories of five refugees. For example, Aiham, born in Syria, has no nationality, passport, or homeland. Yvonne ran from Jamaica because she wasn’t safe as a lesbian, and Bruce was a child soldier in Liberia.

DJ Duckfood defies categorization. He is always on the search for new and old sounds from around the globe. Duckfood is a member of Rebel Up! Soundclash and Pantropical; both promoters of unstereotypical, non-western music. In the end, it is all about bringing people and cultures together and having a good time.
