The BCC is working together with MediaDesk New Mexico to create a collaborative data driven community media arts project. MediaDesk NM has recently created a data driven community profile for Barelas Community Coalition that visualizes many demographics of the neighborhood as heat maps to enhance BCC’s understanding of and interaction with the neighborhood.

MediaDesk has developed database capacities to create a video that depicts both the qualitative side of the neighborhood and the salient data about the economic and social profile of the neighborhood. With the aid of electronic tablets the BCC will conduct a neighborhood survey to  assess the needs of the community, the knowledge we receive will help us to better understand what projects are most relevant to the community.
