Data Labe (data_labe)
data_labe is a data and narrative laboratory in Maré favela - Rio de Janeiro. The team is made up of young people from popular territories who produce new narratives through data. At the center of the developed projects is the question of the imaginary built on the city and its inhabitants.
The laboratory was born in 2015 on the premises of the Favelas Observatory, in partnership with the Data School, and today it is established as a self-managed and self-managed program. The actions are organized in three axes: content production; formation; and monitoring and citizen data generation.
