Data & Drafts

For nerds. By nerds.

Data & Drafts is an event aimed at sparking data informed community conversations, after hours, over beer.


Data & Drafts is a partnership between The Indianapolis Public Library, WFYI Public Media, and SAVI, with support from the Civic Switchboard and beer provided by Sun King Brewery.
