The #Labmobile is a mobile space for learning, hacking, making, and, most of all, for knowledge exchange and community building. The main goal is to have a vehicle to unite people who would otherwise never have met. We want to share our learning that connections made through co-creation are deep, impactful and lasting: We are what we create together!

In 2021, with support from Nörd-Süd-Brüken, Platform Africa ran (literally!) the mobile space to deliver their popular and practical training in remote areas of Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement and neighbouring communities in northern Uganda. Five workshops on (critical) media skills, podcast production and trauma recovery were conducted in different locations using the Big Blue vehicle converted into a mobile training room.
