Civic data is typically locked up in reports that are hard to access for those that don’t speak the language of data. Data murals offer another path into data in community settings. We facilitate bringing community together around local data to find a story and then design and paint a collaborative mural depicting it. This changes the dynamics of power, ownership, and impact if civic data projects. So far we have created over a dozen data murals across the world, and inspired external partners to produce their own as well.
