Intersections Workshops



The Information is Beautiful Awards program is more than handing out trophies: the Awards are a celebration of amazing work being created by data visualization designers, a showcase used for education and inspiration, and an opportunity to support learning and growth across our community.

With the return of the Awards, the Data Viz Society is hosting two days of Intersections Workshops are being hosted in advance of the 2022 IIB Awards Ceremony. The sessions are open to awards ceremony attendees and other data viz community members, with options to join sessions in-person or virtually (select sessions).

Throughout the two days, attendees can nurture their data visualization design skills, celebrate excellence in data visualization, and explore themes and challenges that we’ll need to understand as we advance the data viz industry.

Sessions will be a mix of hands on learning in select data visualization tech stacks and media that could be used to create award-winning data visualizations, short talks about themes in the industry, and lightning talks from 2022 IIB Awards shortlistees sharing a glimpse behind the scenes of their work.
