Workshop: Exposing the Invisible

October 13, 2018
2:15 PM  -  4:00 PM
The Loft at 600 F

This workshop will provide tools useful for any research process — from film documentation or cross-border investigations, to community-centered reporting and citizen investigations. Participants will explore the contexts in which information is generated and learn to access valuable digital resources. They will learn about tapping less obvious information sources and techniques for gathering evidence, and recognize the challenges of operating in diverse environments. Time allowing, we will practice a number of techniques. Feel free to bring some of your own case studies and inquiries for expert advice. Please bring a laptop or a smartphone to be able to practice with some of the tools and resources. This workshop is presented in partnership with the Tactical Tech Collective, creators of the Exposing the Invisible project, which explores how new types of actors, data journalists, programmers, researchers, activists, artists and citizen journalists are able to work together to identify and reveal new strands of evidence available in the public sphere. It provides a collection of tools, tactics, guides and video resources exploring innovative and impactful work at the frontiers of investigation.
