It was once said that a picture paints a thousand words. In today's digital world a picture is often the visual representation of many data points in a constant state of change. This digital art we all see in our workplaces, homes and daily lives is enabling a revolution in interactive storytelling that has been gaining momentum for over a decade now.

At this event we play host to two talented Data and Visualisation specialists. Although based here in Nelson, they work with clients across New Zealand and the globe. We will hear how they are using data and digital art to visualise stories.
