As part of the series of discussions DRAN has held this semester examining strategies to address displacement, we are pleased to invite you to a panel presentation and discussion next Thursday May 4th "Mapping the Crisis: Bottom Up Approaches to Displacement Data" with guests the Anti Eviction Mapping Project, an innovative project of data visualization, data analysis and narrative collection examining the displacement crisis, its impacts and its drivers. We will also be joined by local mapping group, the Boston Displacement Mapping Project. More details on their work below.
This event is a part of longer term work DRAN is engaged in examining ‘data + displacement’. The first half of the program will be a presentation and discussion examining the work and methodologies of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project; the second half of the program will be an interactive discussion on the considerations of data + displacement- what opportunities can innovative approaches to data collection/visualization bring to addressing the crisis? What challenges are faced? What ethical implications are there? - to collaboratively set an agenda for a convening we hope to hold in the fall.
