part of a series on Intention
About the speaker
At this months’ CreativeMornings, something special. A small group of Afghan journalists has recently moved to Charlottesville through the US refugee resettlement program. Over their careers they have worked as journalists, fixers, translators, and photographers for such outlets as the BBC, Reuters, France 24, Public Radio, and beyond. In a panel discussion moderated by local journalist Jordy Yager (of the New Yorker, Columbia Review of Journalism, NPR) and with an introduction from Lulu Miller, Cofounder of NPR’s Invisibilia, these journalists will share some of their best lessons about how to find stories in war zones, how to curate images of violence and suffering, and how to get people to open up when the risk of doing so can be one’s life. Please join us for a special conversation about craft, curation, intention, and how the skills of journalism translate to piecing together a new life in a foreign country. A craft is the instrument in which the authenticity of your being is communicated.
