Spatial Storytelling Series: Finding Stories in Data

Stories are powerful. Yet stories can be hard to uncover, especially when it comes to finding stories in data. A single dataset can contain many different stories depending on the values of the storyteller and the context of their experiences. Want to hone your storytelling skills? This workshop will introduce the typical kinds of stories that can be found in data and give you practice in finding your own data stories.

No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites. As a result of this workshop, you’ll feel more confident “reading” datasets to uncover the stories they contain. The art of finding stories in data will also help you produce data visualizations or narratives, or simply become a more critical consumer of data.

This workshop will be presented by Bob Gradeck and others from the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center
