Event Details

In today’s world, there is no shortage of data, but what does it all mean? Data visualization is the transformation of numbers and data sets into images and stories that inform, inspire, and influence, allowing us to unlock the power of our findings. 

Join us as Data Scientists and Information Designers share their experiences, how to get comfortable with data for effective visualization and how to organize and analyse data in ways that enhance creative storytelling.

We’ll discuss how visual and verbal elements can create a more digestible and appealing experience for data novices, and unpack the stories, people, and ideas behind the numbers.
