Community Visualization offers design and visualization assistance to community partners, with the goal of democratizing complex information such as data, policies and other processes.
Check out many of our past projects here or scroll down for a few examples.
We typically partner with community-based organizations, community organizers, and other leaders who are working with people on the margins of policy development, including communities of color and low-income communities.
Community Visualization tools are created by UMN students and freelance artists and designers, working in collaboration with CURA staff. We work closely with other CURA programs, including Community GIS, Kris Nelson Community-Based Research, and the Minnesota Center for Neighborhood Organizing.
For more information and to inquire about a collaboration or technical assistance, contact Kristen Murray (kmurray @ umn.edu) or 612-625-7560.
