Viz for Social Good: Visualising Data to Tell New Migration Stories

20.06.2020, 6:00 PM CET

    Data Visualisation • Data • Graphic Design • Storytelling


Data visualisation helps to tell stories by curating data into a format easier to understand, highlighting trends and outliers. A good visualization tells a story, removing the noise from data and highlighting useful information. This short talk will share insights from the creation and production of the data visualisations hackathon experience, led by Viz for Social Good around the topic of migration. Speaking with designers, we will also look at how data visualisations can amplify the message of social organisations, while also exploring challenges. Visualisations from the hackathon will be shared to illustrate the talk and give participants an insight into the power of data visualisaiton.

This session may be live-streamed and recorded.
