The internet, mobile phones and the digitisation of data have enabled 
collaborations between activists, hackers, researchers and journalists 
on an unprecedented scale. These collaborations have led to exposures 
and revelations that were once unimaginable.This event will explore how 
technology is being used to expose the invisible.

Tactical Technology Collective support rights advocates from around the 
world to collect, analyse and visualise evidence in a safe and secure 
way. Tactical Tech’s founders and directors, Stephanie Hankey and Marek 
Tuszynski, have been working at the forefront of new information and 
technology collaborations and developments for more than a decade. They 
will join us from Berlin to share their latest productions: a 
documentary film, Exposing the Invisible and a book, Visualising 
Information for Advocacy. The screening will be followed with a panel 
and audience discussion about the challenges and opportunities for 
exposing the invisible.

This event will be of interest to NGOs, activists, hackers, 
technologists, journalists, designers, researchers, academics and anyone 
else interested in using digital technologies to investigate and expose 
injustice and rights abuses. We invite you to come and share your own 
experiences and ideas.
