The weDub Project

Lead Researcher: Tina L. Zeng

Project Type: MDP Post-Graduate Fellow

Year: 2014

The weDub Project is a locally developed DIY audio mixer and preamplifier that fits
in the palm of your hand.

Created in an urban slum of Uganda, the circuit is made by youths to perform live
improvisations of reinterpreted media to a participatory audience.

The project was developed independently without a design brief, and all collaborators and collaborations were personally made on-the-ground.

This work is heavily grounded in academic theory, with months of on-the-ground fieldwork, and multiple prototype iterations.

In addition, an academic thesis paper was submitted for approval in 2014.

Tina formally consulted for the Tech4Dev team of UNICEF’s Innovation Unit in Kampala, Uganda whilst completing her thesis.
