Abdullah and ICChange Receive Dewey Winburne Award at SXSW

March 15, 2015

The South by Southwest interactive conference and festival in Austin, Texas has been held annually for the last twenty-eight years and represents a pilgrimage of sorts for creators and innovators across film, music, and digital and interactive media. It’s for this reason that we are very proud of being the only Canadian organization selected at SxSW 2015 to receive a Dewey Winburne Community Service Award for contributions to the global community in digital innovations!

Abraam and Abdullah were able to attend the event to accept the award and speak to the crowd on some of the challenges that ICChange is tackling across countries and contexts.

ICChange Presents at Falling Walls Lab

November 5, 2014

The Falling Walls Lab is a global network of innovators, researchers, and universities that convene annually to commemorate the falling of the Berlin Wall by looking for the best new ideas to knock down walls in other communities. This year was the first that the Lab was hosted at the University of Alberta and ICChange’s CeraMaji and Kibera Medical Record Initiative (KMRI) ideas were both selected for presentation.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it live, you can watch Abdullah present on Breaking Down the Wall of Health Access in Urban Slums right now!
