Results of the research projects of the data workshops.
Can urban art find antidotes to urban insecurity? Can experiments in co-living and co-creation shed light on ways to promote coexistence on a wider scale?
Experience a reproducible workshop format that allows us to collectively explore the concepts of security and surveillance through our own perceptions, imaginaries, and personal experiences.
Through collaborative debates and meetings, participants developed comprehensive recommendations and an intersectoral action plan to improve security and coexistence. This transformative initiative fostered trust and empowered citizens to reimagine social dynamics and strengthen their communities.
Our first research workshop convened young adults in Medellín to examine questions on surveillance, security, and the extent of government intervention.
"Participatory Data Interventions" is a research program that engages citizens and experts in managing security and surveillance data in cities through workshops and dialogue. The program addresses the lack of transparency and promotes informed discussions on digital security practices, emphasizing the importance of citizen involvement and responsible data practices for urban security.
Help us explore the impact of digitization on security and urban life!
In this blog post, Maria Camila Roldán synthesizes the learnings from different Edgelands' activities in the city of Medellín, including: interviews, research marathon, art residencies, data marathon and a workshop with Editores de Ciudad.
The “social lab” is Mi Sangre Foundation’s methodology for creating an ecosystem of transformation that relies on collaboration and capacity as modes of interrogation.
We were joined by the voices and ideas of experts, institutions, and advocacy actors from Medellín at a round table. Here are the main findings.
We sat down with Sara Arango Franco, team member and one of the primary facilitators and designers of our new data analysis workshops to talk about the motivations behind the program and how it’s gone so far.
First Edgelands Maps workshop in Medellín, Colombia
While the algorithms running in AI programs are efficient in processing thousands of variables and computing millions of data, they are also opaque by nature in their operation.
