Art + Data workshop
Facilitators: Chelsea Gunn, Department of Information Culture and Data Stewardship & Liz Monk, Center for Social and Urban Research
Data is collected and shared in a myriad of ways and sometimes can be complicated or difficult to understand (especially in a presentation where the slide goes too quickly and the numbers are small and you are in the back of the room). But there are many ways to use and share data!
Please join us as we explore the connection between art and the creative side of visualizing data. In this workshop we will share data art inspiration, explore resources for personal and civic data, and spend time getting creative making our own art using data.
No computers will be used in this event, and there are no prerequisite skills or experiences. You are encouraged to join even (or especially!) if you feel like you shouldn’t because you aren’t a “data” person. You should!
Through this workshop, we hope you will build connections, discover new ways of displaying data, and feel more confident exploring datasets on your own.
