Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins - Media Techniques to Advance Advocacy and Litigation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

N-Map will lead a workshop on how video and storytelling can overcome common challenges that human rights defenders face. The session will be very interactive - we will facilitate discussion to help people craft media strategies to further their own advocacy work.

N-Map helps human rights lawyers and advocates integrate video their advocacy. We use visual storytelling to bring human rights law and policy issues to life and provide opportunities for people affected by abuse to tell their stories directly to decision-makers.

We will present several case studies from our work around the world where media has been used at different stages of judicial or advocacy processes to impact human rights outcomes. We will then lead a discussion on what to consider when crafting a media strategy for legal/human rights advocacy, including production and distribution.

Small breakout groups will allow us to collaboratively brainstorm media advocacy interventions for participants at the workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to share their greatest advocacy challenges in these smaller groups and develop tactical media interventions to aid in their legal and policy advocacy work.
