We Are Data focuses on the complexities of data and technology – and how to deal with them. The project brought together artists from Egypt and the Netherlands for a seven-month fellowship. During this period, Cairotronica and IMPAKT organized talks, presentations, interviews, exhibitions, screenings and a series of workshops for the artists. During the workshops, the artists received training and mentorship to develop their projects. In the web project, We Are Data, we present all the projects by the Egyptian artists. The web project also included exclusive talks by international experts in the fields of arts, social sciences and technology, to discuss with us the pressing issues related to data. We Are Data is a partnership between Cairotronica and IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] with the support of the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Arab Studies Institute (ASI). The project is curated by Ghalia Elsrakbi (Cairotronica), Nada Bakr (Cairotronica) and Arjon Dunnewind (IMPAKT).
