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.  
The DCLI family made up of Data Zetu, the dLab, DLI Innovation Challenge, MCC and PEPFAR came together in June to plan forward, rejoice in successes and build upon lessons learned.  
The DLI Innovation Challenge awarded 15 innovations to changemakers who have solutions for economic growth and ending HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.  They received a warm welcome to the DCLI family followed by a week of mentorship and training.
