The weDub Project: VJing and Making DIY Tech in Uganda

April 30, 2016
3:40pm  -  3:55pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

​The weDub Project is a locally developed DIY audio mixer and preamplifier that fits in the palm of your hand. Created in the urban slum of Kamwokya in Uganda, the circuit is made by youths to perform live improvisations of reinterpreted media to a participatory audience. This lively performance is a cultural phenomenon known locally as VJing. Creating never before access to this craft, the DIY circuit engages the community as a platform for youth voices. The weDub Project is an entry point for learning and making electronics in an environment were power issues, electrical and cultural, are at play.
