Data-Driven Khanga Fashion Show--A Night filled with Data and Art to Promote Social Change
On June 8th, the Data Zetu
team organized an unforgettable Khanga Fashion Show
at the National Museum in Tanzania to show how data-driven art can begin to change perceptions, culture, and behavior. 150 participants and the media learned how data on reproductive health and abuse can be incorporated into traditional cloth designs to reach more people and bring about social change. The fashion show featured designs from three well-known artists
who used the winning khanga design in their creations. The top 10
data-driven khangas were on display along with the data-story that inspired them, followed by an energizing fashion show and data-driven songs.
