We have recently launched a new sister project that complements the Data Commons Scotland’s data-based orientation to waste and resources in Scotland with an approach based on generating stories and short fiction about the materials that enter the waste stream in Scotland.
Waste Stories is a project that aims to transform the relationships that we have with waste by exploiting the affective power of story-telling. It involves Data Commons Scotland team members Anna Wilson, Hannah Hamilton and Greg Singh. You can find out more about it here:
We’ll be using some of the images and stories generated through this project to enhance the Data Commons Scotland open data platform in future.
