Join us for the Humanitarian Technology Festival on May 9 and 10 at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA. This two-day gathering will bring people together who are passionate about leveraging technology and creative media for humanitarian aid and disaster response. This event is designed to support dialogues between field practitioners, media makers and storytellers, technology developers, information security practitioners, members of affected populations, researchers, and everyone in between.
Through collaborative workshops and knowledge-sharing sessions, we'll strive to build capacity for humanitarian aid and disaster response efforts. This will be a sibling event to the MIT Humanitarian Technology Conference taking place later that week. We also encourage you to check out B Sides Boston on May 9, a DIY security conference.

What is on the agenda?
To foster a collaborative ethos that reflects the needs, passions, and talents of the people in the room, the agenda topics are emergent, based on input from participants before and during the event. The event will be run using our participatory event methodologies.
We anticipate session topics ranging from existing HA/DR tools, social media strategy, database management, tool gaps and needs, storytelling methods, and even self-care for organizers.
We will begin at 9:00 AM on both days, and end at 19:00 (7pm) on Saturday and 16:00 (4pm) on Sunday. Breakfast and lunch will be served both days, with ample coffee provided.
Get in touch if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there!
Aspiration is working to put on this event with the Humanitarian Technology Conference, Humanitarian Toolbox, Random Hacks of Kindness, Geeks Without Bounds, City Awake, and the MIT Media Lab.
