Vital Village's Data Storytelling Workshop Series
Who's telling the story of your community?
Join Vital Village for the free, virtual Data Storytelling workshop series and build your capacity to create and share stories that support social change using data tools. This learning opportunity is open to all Vital Village and NOW Network resident champions and organizational partners.
The Workshop will focus on five themes for collecting and sharing information that highlight community assets and leverages community strengths.
- Community-Driven Data: Create a data story where all information is defined, collected, and shared by community members.
- Data Collection and Storage: Explore interactive tools that collect, store and share data.
- Mapping and GIS: Create interactive maps with your information and external public or private data sources, to show how your program fits in your community’s social or health context.
- Program Design and Evaluation: Create data dashboards, charts and graphs to track your program goals.
- Sharing Your Story: Communicate your program’s accomplishments through slides or interactive presentations.
