Schedule

The workshop is scheduled for an entire day, with ample time for coffee and food, and will take place in Genk on August 21, 2018.

The workshop is structured as a series of interactive activities and feedback sessions that will expose participants to a variety of tools and techniques that can be used to build critical data literacy with communities. They will work within small groups (4-5 each) to work through activities and deliberate on ideas.
