Medialab-Prado's Visualizar program is a research and education platform 
devoted to exploring the culture of Big Data and its impact today in 
science, society and the arts.

Since its first edition in 2007 the program has gathered more than one 
hundred participants from all over the world who have developed projects 
explaining stories about phenomena like pollution levels and traffic 
flows within big cities, the use of social networks in political 
campaigns or the financing of cultural institutions.

Each Visualizar edition includes an intensive project development 
workshop, a conference, educational activities open to the public and 
the exhibition of the developed projects.

Directed by José Luis de Vicente. With the support of Bestiario
