Alice Corona

Freelance
Venice, Italy
I am currently a freelance consultant in the field of data journalism, data storytelling and data literacy trainings. At the moment, I am based in Venice, Italy and work remotely.


After a degree in History (University of Siena, Italy) and a MA in Communication and Information Sciences (Tilburg University, The Netherlands), I have been practicing my craft working in data journalism and data literacy trainings since 2014: first as a trainee at NRC Next (Dutch newspaper), then as a freelancer for Italian media outlets (Wired Italy), afterwords as lead data journalist at the Amsterdam-based startup Silk (until 2016). In this role I produced data storytelling content on a daily basis, overseeing the different stages of each project, from the data acquisition (including scraping) to data cleaning, data analysis and data visualisation. I also frequently provided support to external journalists and NGOs that needed data-related assistance for their own projects, and I gave training sessions on data storytelling skills.

In 2017 I have resumed working as a freelance data storytelling consultant and trainer. I am actively working to promote data literacy in my role as a MOOC content creator and tutor for Dataninja School, one of the first Italian online school on data for communication. In this position, I often support NGOs, for example when I have been the Data Coordinator and Mentor for the Dataninja Mentorship Programme targeted at Italian NGOs working on international cooperation and development issues.

I like to volunteer and collaborate on data activism projects, like Inside Airbnb and a local housing-rights grassroots research collective (OCIO).

Finally, from 2018 I am also project leader at Batjo: Bits, Atoms and Journalism, a project awarded by the Google DNI Fund to promote the use of data physicalization among journalists and communicators.
