Storytelling through data visualisation – Data storytelling is the focus of MOME OPEN’s summer university

Date: 2023.06.07
Enhances efficiency, results in better decision-making processes and outcomes, and propels businesses forward in a number of areas – these are just a few pros of gaining a deeper understanding of data visualisation at MOME OPEN’s Summer University course.

If you are considering which area to get further training in, I would recommend data visualisation. No matter the field you are specialising in, whether it is law, politics, medicine, or art, the skills to visually communicate relevant insights will be a tremendous boon for your career”, says manager of the Bristol hub of the Economics Observatory website and Senior Research Associate at the University of Bristol Charlie Meyrick. Data storytelling – storytelling through data visualisation – is undoubtedly shaping up to be one of the most dynamically developing areas in recent years, bridging the business sector and the creative industries. This is also confirmed by design researcher of the MOME Innovation Center Damla Cay, who will lead the summer university course, and has over 10 years’ experience in data visualisation. She believes this field will gain further importance in the future as the steady accumulation of data continues, and it will be essential to present them in an easily digestible – and as Damla puts it – ethical and humane fashion.  

By being able to create a graphical representation of their data, businesses can enhance the compelling power, complexity, and clarity of their operations and communication, resulting in an increasingly widespread use of this method and a continuous evolution of the related techniques, and in turn, a growing demand for data visualisation professionals. 

The MOME OPEN summer university aims to introduce participants to the latest techniques of data storytelling through keynote talks, lectures, discussions, and intensive workshops, in addition to providing them with networking opportunities. It welcomes data scientist, researcher, marketer, designer, or anyone else interested in gaining a deeper insight into data visualisation methods or even using it for their operations.
