The global migration and refugees crisis has reached a critical peak the world has not seen since World War II.

What is clear is that we require clear, coordinated, unified action across multiple sectors? What role do media makers, journalists, and creatives have to play in addressing the crisis?

To explore this CILD is partnering with Lina Srivastava at the International Journalism Festival to present an interactive journalism and transmedia workshop on the subject of migration, specifically migrant rights through media-rich storytelling and engagement.

The following assets will be employed:

Who is Dayani Cristal (documentary on Mexican border migration, winner at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival)

> The impact of Who is Dayani Cristal?

This workshop will address issues of migration, migrant rights, the root causes of migration from sending countries, Mediterranean migration, international and community development, media strategy, communications, storytelling, and documentary film.

Participants will move through a spectrum of media creation, distribution and engagement, learning how to integrate stories from their work with media strategy and communications activity. In particular, multimedia and immersive storytelling techniques will be introduced.
