We aim to investigate the visual storification of data, by engaging young people, local businesses, and high street brands to engage in contributing binary (yes/no, good/bad) quantitative data as well as narrative (photos, text) qualitative data, to inform visual data stories which are linked to location in real time. Using participatory design, an installation/intervention in the community will serve to engage participants with hyper-local stories and relevant issues, in a two-way exchange with the mobile/online platform – collecting data from participants, and communicating data. We envision sponsored free wifi in a small local community to help generate participation.
