Pre-hack Event at VerdensKulturCentret

On April 30th 2016, the Copenhagen based team hosted an explorative workshop at VerdensKulturCentret.
Bringing together asylum seekers, students, researchers, nurses, interaction designers, volunteers, grassroots initiatives and curious citizens – to map out and prioritise urgent issues within the field of integration and migration.
We brainstormed together and learned about the concrete experiences of being a refugee, asylum seeker, nurse or passionate volunteer.
Using this as a starting point, we jointly discussed and identified key challenges, needs and possibilities. Among others, we looked at the challenges of meeting others, of being a master of one’s life, of accessing information/healthcare, rights and language skills.

Between AAU and Antropologerne we look forward to continuing working on the problems defined by the participants: Ideating, sketching scenarios, searching for relevant open data, and concretising challenges for our hackathon in the Autumn.

Thank you to the dedicated participants who attended our workshop and shared their experiences!
