Hi! I’m a director of an annual non-profit photography festival in Cambodia. We would like to do a workshop which addresses the very real issue journalists/storytellers (print, photography, video) face when it comes to creating an impact with their work by getting their work seen by the right audiences. With social media being the primary source of news and information in many countries in Asia, the platform of so-called “mass media” no longer exists.
There are many dedicated and passionate people working on crucial topics in human rights, social issues and environment. They really want to make a difference with what they do, but navigating the digital waters to ensure their work makes a difference can be tough. It would require an overhaul of their approach to storytelling and creating campaigns, and also an understanding of how social media distorts the spread of information.
I’m looking for people in the media industry who might be able to share their experiences and speak about solutions to come speak at a workshop we’re trying to create!
Thanks in advance,
