During an event in the Statenhal in Den Haag, organised by the House of Parliament, the Open State Foundation and Netwerk Democratie, Parliamentary  data sets were offered to invited makers and thinkers to develop apps that explore the possibilities of a more transparant parliament by rendering those data usefull for society. Who cares developed a set of icons visualising what open government data could mean in practice and set the stage of the day elaborating on the logo developed by Topika.

For the kick-off meeting of a new funding and knowledge program aimed at innovative cultural productions (MLNA/OBSERVATORIUM) Who cares? designed a few spatial installations based on the visual identity (by Mediamatic), to support communicating the intentions of the program. The installations were partially connecting to the RFID fueled community system of the website. All elements were designed for re-use for meetings in the framework of MLNA/OBSERVATORIUM.
