Data Storytelling Workshop*
Data is everywhere. Big data. Local data. Personal data. Data is an increasingly powerful - yet invisible - force which is shaping many facets of our lives.
For creatives, this presents a number of unique opportunities. Journalists are able to find unique stories hidden in datasets which help to hold authority to account or explain the world around us. Meanwhile, designers and coders can visualize data driven stories in new and powerful ways.
This half-day workshop will bring together people from different disciplines to talk about the way that data is influencing their work. We’ll hear from a Pulitzer prize winning journalist turned educator, the Assistant Masthead Editor / Director of the award-winning graphics desk at the New York Times, data companies and development agencies.
Through this, attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to tell stories through data and the tools available to enable them to do this.
As the data bandwagon gathers speed, this event will show how anyone can hop on board, so that you too can take advantage of the storytelling opportunities afforded by the data revolution.
