During the intensive three-day workshop, ten selected participants, together with NOOR photographers Sebastiàn Liste and Andrea Bruce will share experiences and expertise on how to pick up, develop, and produce stories covering conflict and human rights issues for multimedia productions. Subjects covered will include: preproduction, research, logistics, access, safety, equipment for filmmaking and sound, camera movement, lighting, audio, interviewing, filming techniques, and shooting for editing.

Drawing from their own experiences, Sebastiàn and Andrea will discuss the motivations, challenges, and possibilities of integrating still photography and video into visual storytelling methods. This workshop will be a unique opportunity to gain new knowledge and contacts in an intimate and interactive environment, while learning how to produce impactful multimedia.


Sebastiàn Liste(Spain) is a documentary photographer devoted to covering contemporary issues and profound cultural changes in Latin America and the Mediterranean regions. He specializes in long-term, in-depth projects, like “Urban Quilombo”, documenting extreme living conditions faced by dozens of families in an abandoned chocolate factory in Brazil. Through visual journalism he aims to generate dialogue and collaboration between subjects and audiences, bringing different worldviews into confrontation with each other.

For eight years she worked as a staff photographer for The Washington Post and later as part of the VII Network (2010-2011).
