On 19 March 2020, 35 Brisbane Data enthusiasts got together to help Sunny Street make a bit more sense of their data.
This was the very first Viz For Social Good event in Australia, we made history!
Viz for Social Good helps mission-driven organisations to promote social good and understand their own data through beautiful and informative data visualisation.
Sunny Street is changing the world by providing heartfelt healthcare to our community’s most vulnerable people. We need to be able to clearly articulate our social impact to our stakeholders, collaborators and potential sponsors and funding sources.
- 75 people had registered
- 35 people were on the Zoom session
- 13 data volunteers presented

Sunny Street top 5:
|Shows the data in the simplest but most appealing way, and really love how he has framed things. Sunny Street Colours, and really with the viewpoint of letting people understand our work and tugging at heartstrings LOVE LOVE LOVE these simple but powerful visualisations|
|As I said in initial feedback: hit the nail on the head regarding the public health statistics and adding a monetary value to our service vs not having it – really cool. Would love to see more of our data compared with national health priority areas and with a monetary value added.
|Samantha’s viz has some really interesting stats and some of the most helpful ones are presented very nicely. I like that she is one of the few that focussed on referrals – because when we work together we accomplish lots more! And simple easy to read graphs etc.
|Kelly Harrison’s viz gave us beautiful insight into volunteer wellbeing and how we can quantify those campfire measures too, which was eye opening. We are very passionate about our volunteer’s loving what they do and being provided everything they need, they shaoe our service – so we love what Kelly has done here
|Robert / Cognium’s
|Robert / Cognium’s viz is a beautiful visualisation of the Sunny Street Cognium Study. It shows that there is absolute value in continuing to collect this data, and it will go towards shaping what the next set of studies looks like. We also love your work guys!
- I created a Slack channel that allowed volunteers to ask questions, get feedback, continue the discussion, feel free to join
We had a follow up event, 2 April, 5 PM – recording here
This second Zoom event allowed:
- Sunny Street gave feedback to volunteers, engaged in further discussions, next steps
- We allowed a couple of extra data enthusiasts to present (that missed the first event)
Now moving on to the next step!
We are exploring the implementation a REAL live Business Intelligence platform for Sunny Street and we need a small group of volunteer to help.
Enter your name in this survey if you want to nominate to be part of the small team to help with the implementation a live Business Intelligence platform for Sunny Street – Note, not everyone will get in, as the team will need to be small and cross skilled..
