DATA as Voice // Data AS Dialogue // Garden ZERO (09/2016 – 08/2017)
Garden Zero is one of the first GoodVoice pilot groups, made up of a small group of high school kids and recent high school graduates, who meet-up monthly at Nebula Co-working space. Garden Zero established their initial direction by focusing on youth issues related to social media. Moving from small group dialogue and storytelling to designing and developing a series of polls to serve their strategic desire to expand and diversify their small group conversation and learn while growing a small network and collecting a small dataset.
Garden Zero collected 67 responses to their initial short intro poll from 34 unique zip codes across St. Louis, represented below.
Students from Garden Zero as well as Changemakers, a class at North Kirkwood Middle School dedicated to uplifting youth voices to help improve our community, both produced polls that you can review (and take, if appropriate!) below:
