The CIVIC Data Library of Context

Project: Civic Data Library of Context

CIVIC Data Library of Context is a project of Civic Software Foundation. In June 2020, CIVIC led a cohort of 36 people from around the world inspired by the publication of Data Feminism, by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren Klein. The focus of this workshop had a goal to translate concepts from a chapter entitled “The Numbers Don’t Speak for Themselves” and imagine what it could look like to bring structured context from theory into a collective practice at scale.

The outcomes from the Structured Context Cohort laid the foundation for schemas and frameworks included in CIVIC’s methodology for Context Aware Systems.
