Mostly Magical

At Hack Oregon, we're bringing local data stories to life that wouldn't exist otherwise.         Or--- they are the data projects we all imagine should exist but somehow don't.  

We do this by assembling short-term interdisciplinary teams focused around real life context and human-design elements of a project.  This is entirely volunteer driven, which makes for an amazingly inspired environment, but it's also challenging work.  Having a great facilitator makes all the difference-- both to the experience of the maker-team and the final impact of the data. 

Every project we do is open source, and every project has a theme of civic transparency.  

For a facilitator, this creates unique considerations to balancing government, high tech, visual design, and the weight of public interest.  There's a not always a roadmap of how to get from A to B to C, but we're hoping to make the process of leaping into unknown territory a little more--- shall we say... predictably unpredictble? 

For the first time, we're opening up our process to the public in the form of a special facilitator training.  

What's the occasion?

Hack Oregon is collaborating with University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication for a 3-day Storytelling with Data Buildathon in March.  

We'll have up to 6 teams creating data-driven stories for an interactive digital editorial piece which will be published at the end of the workshop.  

We have spots open for 3 additional facilitators, and for those who are interested in volunteering for the position, we will begin interviews from the pool of attendees.
