The Big Data Show

Conceived after a chance meeting between award-winning playwright and theatre director Clare Duffy, and renowned technology journalist Rupert Goodwins, The Big Data Show is a call to action for greater understanding and safety in our cyber world, for present and future generations.

The Big Data Show takes the form of two hour interactive theatre show designed to educate young people across the UK in cyber vulnerability. It addresses growing threats to young people’s wellbeing as they navigate this digital world.

The Big Data Show will take pre- and post-performance workshops to schools before they attend the performance. Each school will receive a teachers’ pack of cross curricular activities that run in tandem with the curriculum for excellence. Over the next 12 months it is planned that the project will reach around 15,000 young people.
