How to get there


A converging night will open Encode: Data Journeys – bringing together various communities in an evening that will surely blow your mind. Curated by Outliers in Data Design – a group for women and other under-represented voices working at the intersection of data and design and co-hosted by the popular meet-up Visualising Data London, the evening will present the work of two incredible artists Rachel Ara and Julie Freeman. They will talk about Data Art, with a special agenda focusing on inclusivity and diversity. The audience will have the chance to ask questions to two renowned artists, while networking over pizza and beer!
