Data-viz: From theory to practice

De la teoría a la practica

I taught participants various methods for designing data visualization, working with programmers, designers, data analysts and researchers.

This  workshop regarding how to “humanize” data, conducting resiliency projects with victims and populations at risk. I designed low cost analog data visualisation workshops with empathetic design techniques using scissors, papers, stickers, post-its and balloons. These served both to facilitate the sharing of sensitive information with relevant organisations to better serve these communities, as well as teaching different methods that vulnerable and low-literacy populations could use to share data about their lives, experiences and issues. For example, we worked with participants to create analogue visualisations about murders and femicides by region, type and age.
