Our partners at the Stanford’s Digital Impact initiative recently invited us to host a virtual roundtable discussion focused on building data capacity. In case you missed it, the recording and transcript are now online!
We gave a quick background on the Data Culture Project. Then we tried a quick online data sculpture activity; asking participants to make and share a photo of a physical data story just using things they found around their office. From there we pivoted into a discussion of how the World Food Programme and El Radioperiódico Clarín are building capacity to work with data in creative ways.
