At this event we’ll be jumping into the world of storytelling and exploring how to utilise storytelling techniques to create powerful narratives that do justice to your cause. From copywriting to imagery, we’ll look into how to share your charity’s message through engaging and successful comms.

Telling stories through photography

With the rise of the camera phone, everyone has the ability to document the world around them. But how can you do this ethically, in a way that empowers your subjects and allows them to tell their authentic story? Award-winning photojournalist Kate Holt will take you through how to capture stories safely and sensitively, using a method she has successfully employed for over two decades for media outlines like Reuters, The Guardian and the BBC.
