The Visual Methodologies Collective is a research group specializing in visual and digital research for social and cultural issues. Our interests lie at the intersections of visual culture, digital research, information design, media theory, data visualization, storytelling, and critical making. 

We work with the Citizen Data Lab on participatory data practices. We study climate change solutions with the Digital Society School, Climate Cleanup and the Digital Methods Initiative. Within the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, we teach the Minor MakersLab, Issue Mapping for Fashion at AMFI (MA FEC), and more.

The Visual Methodologies Collective consists of researchers, designers, and developers and is based at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Digital Media and Creative Industries. 

The group is headed by dr. Sabine Niederer, Professor of Visual Methodologies.
