Event description

Description

How might visualising data about inequality and inclusion help to engage people more with these critical issues and make data about them more tangible and accessible?


If you are interested in exploring this question, join us for the DataVisFest, a DataFest fringe event which will bring together data holders, data visualisation novices and experts, data scientists, designers and anyone interested in this topic to develop creative data visualisation concepts, prototypes, and future collaborations. The aim of the event is to create data visualisations that will help a broader range of people to become better informed about and engage with issues of inequality and inclusion in their communities and beyond. Outputs of the event may take the form of physical visualisations, interactive data visualisation on the web (d3), data analysis with python, visualisation in unity and VR.

This event is organised by the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics and the Edinburgh College of Art. Participants will have the opportunity to learn new skills through tutorials and workshops and will work with datasets from our data collaborators, including Scottish Government, CRESH (Centre for Research on Environment, Society and Health) and others.
Complete information is available on the website: https://datavisfest.wordpress.com

Two types of tickets are available – General Admission and Experienced. Please select Experienced if you have some foundation in data visualisation and/or data science skills. Otherwise please select General Admission. There will be a waiting list once tickets are sold out, and we will release tickets as they become available.
