Gerd Marie May
Founder, Room of Solutions
After attending Constructive Institute in Århus, Denmark as a fellow, Gerd has set out to rethink about journalism:
I work to create a society where everyone who wants to feel part of a meaningful community is able to make informed decisions and actively participate in the development of society.
Her company, “Room of Solutions” helps create and implement strategies that includes constructive and engaging journalism. By tradition, editorial managers don’t talk about negative or constructive news, it’s all about news. Gerd is challenging this rule, saying that media needs to be critical to own methods to find its future position in society.
I help Danish and foreign media and educational institutions with strategy workshops, inspirational lectures and educational programs.
I am committed, passionate and focused on developing journalism so that it constructively supports a positive development in our society.
I believe in inclusivity, inspiration, nuances and trust as the fundamental journalistic criteria.
Gerd Marie May worked as a journalist at Danmarks Radio, head of editorial developments at Fyhns Stiftstidende and has held educational positions as lecturer at University of Southern Denmark.

Data visualization: newsroom trends, everyday engagements, possible futures
This presentation looks at the production of data visualizations (or dataviz) in newsrooms and audiences’ engagements with dataviz, drawing on two separate research projects. The first is Seeing Data (seeingdata.org), which explored how people make sense of data visualizations, and the second is INDVIL (indvil.org), on which I worked with others to ask: How is data visualization being embedded into newsroom practice? What trends are emerging, and what challenges are arising? On the INDVIL project, we found that dataviz are perceived in diverse ways and deployed for diverse purposes. On Seeing Data, we also found great diversity, this time in how audiences make sense of dataviz. This diversity is important for the future work of dataviz practitioners. I conclude the talk by reflecting on what future data visualization in the news might look like.
Helen Kennedy is Professor of Digital Society at the University of Sheffield. Her research has traversed digital media landscapes and has often involved working closely with media practitioners. She is currently investigating the datafication of everything, with an emphasis on the visual dimensions of this phenomenon. She leads the Seeing Data (seeingdata.org) programme of research, on which she collaborates with award-winning data visualizers such as Visualising Data (http://visualisingdata.com/) and Clever Franke (https://www.cleverfranke.com/).
