DatavizKitchen is a project dedicated to online and in-person training to help NGO’s and journalists more effectively cook up and serve data visualizations. We will also introduce a variety of freely available tools for data visualization and analytics, and the set of universal data skills necessary for navigating the quickly evolving universe of dataviz.
But as exciting as the universe of free tool is, most NGOs and journalists who dive into innovative ICT projects are either destined to fail or will never even start. They may have a fantastic idea, but they lack the skills to execute it properly, lack a clear vision, do not have an appropriate workflow, or ultimately were delivered an outsourced solution that was not built properly. So, we will cover more than just tools. We will also provide an overview of the essential steps in managing a successfully executed ICT project, and a few classic mistakes to avoid.
Places are limited; please enroll to reserve a place!

Who should join us?
There is no typical delegate. Data is everywhere and if you are looking to share your critical insights visually, you will join a hands-on community for a good start. Data visualization works so well because the human brain is extremely well-equipped to process visual information. Information and Communication Technology has only begun to shape our lives in 21st century and it is our moral obligation to embrace this change and use it to inform and to empower the people.
