Launch of Behind the Curtain

October 28, 2014

Going live tomorrow, Behind the Curtain is a new Hack Oregon website that will feature a searchable library of visualizations for the entire database of Oregon Elections. This project, designed to make campaign finance date more accessible to the public, was initiated in a class in PNCA’s MFA in Collaborative Design program. As the Willamette Week reports, Behind the Curtain uses Oregon Elections Division data, ” to create easy-to-understand visuals of candidates’ funding sources.” Hack Oregon hosts a public launch party Thursday, October 30, from 6:30 to 9 pm at Crowd Compass, 2505 SE 11th Ave., Suite 300.
