Heading to NICAR 2015? Consider coming early for Tapestry, the data storytelling conference. Tapestry is a one-day, invitation-only conference that brings together journalists, academics and designers to discuss the evolving field of data storytelling. This year’s event includes keynotes by Hannah Fairfield of the New York Times, Kim Rees of Periscopic: Do Good With Data, and Michael Austin of Newman University, author of Useful Fictions. Short stories, demo sessions and posters complete the day.
Tapestry will be held in Athens on Wednesday, March 4th (with a welcome reception the evening before, March 3rd). Transportation will be provided to the NICAR conference at the end of the day. The $100 conference fee is waived for journalists and sponsorships for the hotel are available. If you’re interested in data storytelling and want to join us for a day of stimulating ideas, talks, and conversations, please request an invitation at http://www.tapestryconference.com.
