Visualizing Knowledge 2021

VK21 invites you into a collective exploration of democracy and the role of knowledge visualization in democracy. Now, more than ever, the visualization of knowledge plays a vital role in the democratic process. Topics we will explore include; open data, visualizations in elections, government reports for decisionmakers, democratic journalism, the accessibility of data and information, and the visualization of global themes and concerns.

VK20 brings together visualization experts, researchers, educators, innovators, and enthusiasts to envision how we can make democracy more visual, and thereby, enabling more people to be informed participants in democracy. We will collaboratively ideate and imagine how data visualization and information design can be utilized to unleash the potential of democracy.
