Following up on the 2016 “Let’s Go jHUB” programme, the OPEN HARDWARE GUIDE or #OHG is an outcome of the Open Tech and Repair Skills workshop led by Timm Wille and hosted by the Hive Colab innovation hub in Kampala.

As a follow-up to the first Open Learning Guide (#OLG) the Open Hardware Guide gives examples of hands-on skills possibilities and projects applying open hardware methodologies. Acting as an introduction to resources and as a tangible tool in the form of a rugged A1 poster for trainers, tinkerers and facilitators, the #OHG is ready for distribution to anyone interested in exploring open technologies in a very practical way.

The #OHG content was developed by the workshop participants based on their designs and documented steps in test workshops held with students at the Panyadoli Self-Help Secondary School in Bweyale, Uganda. Alongside the #OHG, the participants helped develop and test #ASKotek, the ‘Access to Skills and Knowledge – open tech emergency kit‘ a field-trainers resource tool-kit for repairing, building and learning about practical electronics including small scale solar power.

The Let’s Go jHUB (#LGJ) project, in collaboration with icebauhaus e.V. (Weimar), KAPITAL / jHUB (Juba) and r0g_agency for open culture gGmbH (Berlin), was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through its programme of “Support for Media, Access to Information and Freedom of Expression”. Given the violence that broke out in Juba, South Sudan’s capital, in the summer of 2016, the programme was implemented though the generous support and cooperation of GIG partner organisations iceaddis in Addis Ababa, mLAB and iHUB in Nairobi, kLAB in Kigali and Hive Colab in Kampala.

an initiative by r0g_agency and icebauhaus supporting the implementation of a community-based media training centre in Juba, South Sudan. The idea to create a media lab has its roots in the Kapital Movie Industry Corporation (KMIC) collective, an independent group of young designers, film makers, IT professionals and artists who came together to help solve the acute post-independence social, political, educational and environmental challenges which arose through the long-lasting conflicts in South Sudan.

The “Step-Up Juba Media Lab” project is a collaboration between icebauhaus, Kapital Movie Industry Corporation (Juba) and r0g_agency for open culture and critical transformation gGmbH (Berlin), funded by the German Federal Ministry of International Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through it’s programme “Support for Media, Access to Information and Freedom of Expression”.

Step-Up Juba Media Lab

r0g_agency and icebauhaus support the implementation of a community-based media training centre in Juba, South Sudan in a common project since August of 2015. The initiative to create a media lab or hub stems from the Kapital Movie Industry Corporation (KMIC) collective, an independent group of young designers, film makers, IT professionals and artists who have come together to help solve the acute post-independence social, political, educational and environmental challenges arising from 21 years of fought civil war.

Already constituted as the ad-hoc ‘Kapital Virtual Academy’ which focuses on self-directed training in film and video production, use of software and related technical systems and methodologies, the initial focus is now on knowledge development through the creation of professional capacity building workshops and hands-on production. Addressing themes that define specific challenges, such as post-conflict national transformation and the building of an open, democratic, and socially just South Sudan, J-HUB’s mission will also be, through seminar and debates, to provide an open forum to discuss, identify and develop solutions to these challenges.
