An digital exhibition
Exploring the concept of well-being data and its power and potential to shape society
What is well-being? How is it understood by different people in different times and places? What is the role of data in understanding well-being, and how can better understanding of well-being data improve shared understanding of societal problems, and make for a more understanding society?
Building on Dr Susan Oman’s research, Understanding Well-being Data is an interactive exhibition, including three animations that explore these questions. The videos help you question assumptions that have underpinned centuries of social science, statistical and policy work, considering how well-being data work for politicians, scientists, key thinkers – and us all.
This exhibit will be available to view from Monday 1 November 2021.
