Founded by Sound and Music, the national agency for new music, the Creative Data Club is a place for anyone interested in using data in new and interesting ways.

For artists, data opens up a whole new way of producing work. For organisations and brands the opportunities for how we build audiences are huge.

This edition of the Creative Data Club series will focus on using social media data in creative ways. Each of our speakers will give a short presentation on their subject to get you inspired and then the floor will open up to allow you to discuss and share and have a drink.
