Back in February, some of the network members successfully applied for research funding to undertake a project about co-designing with speculative data stories. This was intended to involve co-creating speculative stories in face-to-face workshops. The Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on universities forced a rethink of these plans. The project team drew back from the initial aim of co-creating stories during the project lifetime and instead worked to design a tool that would allow participants to create stories in the future.
This tool, in its first iteration, is now live on the Data Stories project site. It will continue to evolve as the project team gets feedback from people about how it works for them. We’d welcome stories and input from the network and beyond. If you have questions about the project or feedback on the tool, please contact email@example.com
