This PRO Network webinar will cover the many creative methodologies of collecting and representing quantitative and qualitative data when working on artistic projects. How can we collectively design methods that go beyond the norms of collecting and representing data such as surveys and charts? And why is that important? Gamar will be sharing the creative methods that she has utilized throughout her career including play, storyboarding, visual storytelling, mapping, interviews, conversation starters, and much more.
