Data Visualization for Advocacy (Online)

You have data, now what will you do with it? This webinar will look at ways you can use graphic design and visualization to bring your data to life and to use it to further your advocacy goals. We will look at examples of advocacy campaigns using data visualization and discuss an overview of design principles, the design process, and visual tools for strategic planning. We will share sample graphics commissioned by the Gates Foundation and discuss resources for inspiration, tools, and further exploration. This session is designed to build on a workshop offered at the November State Library Capacity Meeting in Seattle, but is open to anyone in public libraries who is interested in learning more about how to visually use data to help tell a compelling story.
