Nonprofits, you have data sets. But how to show them off?

Join us on Tuesday, June 5, for the second project night and final session of Tech in the Commons 2018, focused on digital and data storytelling (BYO laptop).

Data can help non-technologists make sense of complicated topics — but only when it’s presented in a digestible, universally understood format.

For the past five weeks, Generocity has been bringing nonprofit leaders together to hear from local experts on the latest digital engagement strategies.

That’s included digital and data storytellingaugmented and virtual realitysocial media for action and Smart Cities. It’s all part of the second installment of Tech in the CommonsGenerocity’s free tech bootcamp series presented by Knight Foundation and Comcast NBCUniversal.

For our second project night and final event of the series, we’re inviting nonprofit leaders and civic-minded impact pros of all stripes to dig into some data and tell some digital stories with it this Tuesday, June 5.

(Not that this event will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at the City of Philadelphia’s Innovation Lab in the Municipal Services Building, not 1776.)

Attendees are invited to either bring their own data sets — CSV files, Excel spreadsheets — and ideas for what to do with them, or work on others’ data sets in transforming them from static to lively.

Volunteers from civic hacking group Code for Philly, including new co-director Rich McMillen, will be on hand to guide participants and introduce some data storytelling tools; think Tableau, DataHero, Canva, Infogram.

But this event will be mostly self-directed. Bring your own laptop and be prepared to ask the pros questions, but also be prepared to get your hands (digitally) dirty.
