What is IA?
Information Architecture is the practice of finding meaning in patterns, organizing information to better communicate ideas, and creating systems that promote shared understanding. It is how communication, navigation, and sharing of information across the globe are facilitated.
World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration hosted by the Information Architecture Institute and held in dozens of locations across the globe.
How Are We Using It?
This year WIAD Tampa Bay is partnering with Chart 411 to hold
a one-day conference and workshop. Chart 411 is a local non- profit in St. Petersburg with environmentally focused education and initiative programs.
We will take time to learn more about IA, talk about how we can use IA to benefit our local community, and then put our skills to work to help solve an IA problem for Chart 411.
Show the world your support for IA; this event is live streamed worldwide:
- 4000 people will attend a World IA Day event in 2017
- 35% of attendees will be from North America
- 65% of attendees will be from Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and South America
We will facilitate a half day workshop to help nurture relationships, emphasize the importance of working together, and promote innovative problem-solving.
Grow Our Local Economy
We believe in providing free educational resources to promote the awareness of information architecture.
In doing so, we are able to attract professional talent to Tampa Bay.
