RSVP Here (it's a big hall, but we're capping it at 200 people for those who've bought a ticket):
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!

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: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Observe-Collect-Draw-Visual-Journal/dp/1616897147
I'm sure she'll sign a copy if you bring one :)
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. She'll 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.
