Workshop Includes

This workshop includes a copy of Art + Data: A Collection of Tableau Dashboards. It also comes with a printed workbook containing activities and information reviewed in the workshop. This workbook is designed to lead workshop participants through the course and to be a resource after the workshop has come and gone.

Workshop participants will also receive the packaged workbook (.twbx) files for all 20 dashboards featured in the Art + Data book.
