Note: we normally host at New Women Space and all ticket fees go back to the organization to support their purpose. For this event, we're using a larger hall at Columbia University to accommodate a bigger crowd. All ticket fees will go back to our general fund to support New Women Space by renting out their basement for future events!
Cost: $10 (Patrons of The Pudding get in free! Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a ticket)
The Speaker: For this event we'll be hosting Information designer and artist Giorgia Lupi, whose book Dear Data is a must-read for data storytellers. She's given a TED Talk, co-founded Accurat, exhibited at MoMA (and had Dear Data acquired into their permanent collection), and just joined MIT Media Lab as a fellow. Basically she's a data rockstar, and the team at The Pudding has been eager host an event with her. (ps. she also just released a new book, I'm sure she'll sign a copy if you bring one :)
The Talk: Giorgia will guide you through how we can design more meaningful experiences with data: including empathy and human qualities in how we approach, gather and represent it. Giorgia will discuss how to see this moment in time as an opportunity to jumpstart a new renaissance, where we can question the impersonality of a merely technical approach to data, where we are ready to reconnect numbers to what they really stand for: our lives, behaviors and ideas.
