Technology, Journalism & Human Rights

How are journalists, human rights advocates, artists, and engineers using interactive technology, virtual reality and data investigation to expose human rights violations? How can these approaches be used in partnership with impacted communities and social movements to create change? 

Join HELM Social Design Studio, for Narrative for Change, a panel discussion and exhibition exploring the intersection of technology, journalism, and human rights. This panel brings together innovators using technology in media and human rights to engage in critical discussion and share cross-sector strategies. Through the use of photography, video, and interactive technology, including 360 degree virtual tours, the Narrative for Change exhibition endeavors to create space for understanding, reflection and action on urgent social issues.

The Narrative for Change exhibition and panel discussion has been co-sponsored by HELM Studio, CUNY School of Journalism, VICE media and the Knight Foundation.
