Are you a community leader, a nonprofit organization, or an individual working to improve your neighborhood and community? Then join the Baltimore Neighborhood Alliance and Jacob France Institute for Baltimore Data Day this Friday July 12, 2019!
Baltimore Data Day is an event featuring speakers and workshops focused on sharing tools and ideas for groups using information and data to create positive change.
This year will begin with a welcome from University of Baltimore President Kurt Schmoke, Seema Iyer of the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance-Jacob France Institute, and Lawrence Lanahan, author of The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore’s Racial Divide. The full day features poster and information sessions, a hackathon, and workshops throughout the day.
The sessions and workshops aim to provide a chance for people who work with information and data to connect community members with valuable tools, information, and resources that can benefit their projects!
There’s a workshop for everyone! Whether you’re interested in the BNIA Vital Signs Data, learning about Baltimore and the 2020 Census, archives and qualitative data, storymaps, learning Python, students and education, archiving community history, crime data, or other topics related to using data and information in your projects, Baltimore Data Day offers a variety of sessions for community members and organizations.
