This year’s Visualizar workshop by the Medialab Prado comes with a very intruiging tagline: Public Data, Data in Public. Accordingly the focus areas are Free Data for Better Science, Open data for a transparent government and Data for Public Debate. For those that are unfamiliar with Visualizar:
The Visualizar project, directed by José Luis de Vicente, is conceived as an open and participartory research project around theory, tools and estrategies of information visualization.
The Medialab-Prado programme issues a call for the presentation of projects and papers to be collectively produced and presented publicly within the framework of the Visualizar’09 event, to be held from 12 to 27 November 2009. Confirmed tutors are Aaron Koblin from the Google Creative Lab and Ben Cerveny from Stamen. The deadline for proposals is October 5th.
