You think you know your country? is a series of events challenging some of the assumptions that we hold about the UK, the communities in which we live and how data can help create better awareness, understanding and change.
The first event - Data, democracy and demographics - takes a look at emerging trends and patterns within the UK from metropolitan centres to towns and rural communities, how people perceive economic differences and how these shifts are affecting the political landscape of our country.
To help explore this changing landscape we'll be joined by Jane Green - Professor of Political Science at Manchester University and Ian Warren founder of Election Data and the Centre for Towns.
There will be presentations followed by an opportunity for lots of discussion.
Following events in the series will be - Who owns the land? - in February and - A question of money - in March. Join our mailing list at http://www.opendatamanchester.org.uk to get advance notification of these and other events and training we'll be running in the new year.
