How the DAT/Artathon 
came to be

Originally, the DAT/Artathon was an in-person event at Understanding Risk 2020. Community is one thing we desparately need during this time of social isolation and global separation, so we decided to move it to a virtual platform.

Sabine and Yolanda are disaster analysts,  researchers, & visualization enthusiasts. They have collective experience in facilitating collaborative workshops (see here and here) and engaging audiences with data (here).
