Airwars: Radical Listening

Day-long workshop on open source tools and techniques. Led with Hanna Rullman.
(May 2019)
Het Nieuwe Instituut
#investigations #participatory-works

A practical introduction to working with open source information and methods to report civilian deaths in war.

We will discuss a recent investigation by Airwars and Amnesty International into civilian harm during the Battle of Raqqa in 2017. Together, we will explore social media as a source of reporting, geolocation, and satellite image analysis, all using publicly available information. In the second half of the workshop, we will experiment with the different ways organise and narrate open source research.
