*Note: This post was updated on 9/8/18 to reflect that the deadline to apply for the Learning Lab RFP has been extended to Friday, September 14th.
Stemming out of recent OTF efforts to be both more open in our funding operations and share more of the knowledge we receive through our work with the Internet freedom community, OTF is creating a community-driven Learning Lab. The Learning Lab will be a transparent means by which OTF and the broader Internet freedom community can better understand the impact of our funding in a way that emphasizes collective learning and knowledge sharing. It will also serve as an online home for the outputs generated by a number of recent OTF’s strategic initiatives.
In practice, this will entail helping OTF projects and fellows share what they have learned and accomplished in the form of post-project or fellowship blog-style write-ups, as well as helping to ensure that projects’ associated outputs are presented in a visually appealing, professional format through graphic design consultation services. To this end, we are seeking individuals or firms to provide writing, visualization, and production coordination services for OTF-supported projects and fellows.
You can learn more and apply by accessing the full Request for Partners (RFP). The deadline to submit an application to be a Learning Lab service provider is now Friday, September 14th, no later than 23:59 (11:59PM) GMT.
