London-based organizations Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) and the Rory Peck Trust’s hugely popular Freelance Safety Clinics are coming to Photoville!
Are you a freelance photojournalist or documentary photographer in need of some expert, one-to-one advice on safety, risk assessment, digital security, or trauma management? Then sign up now for one of our FREE safety clinics taking place on Saturday, 21st September, as part of Photoville 2019 at the famed St. Ann’s Warehouse.
These clinics are intended for freelancers who are preparing for an assignment, or who are keen to improve their safety or security. They provide an opportunity to receive direct access to expert knowledge, advice and guidance, that will help them manage their preparations and improve their safety skills.
Security advisors from news organizations including The New York Times, VICE, and NBC will be available to provide guidance on safety issues, risk assessment, assignment planning, and digital security, as well as specialists from the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma, who will be on hand to provide guidance on interviewing contributors, self-care, and planning for potentially traumatic assignments.
Individual clinics will be available throughout the day in 45 minute slots. To apply for a safety session, please fill in the booking form [https://forms.gle/JhvgSYGGqpRCZ4DA9]. Deadline for applications is Monday, 19th August.
Please note: Freelancers are welcome to bring assignment/story plans, and draft risk assessments, to discuss with their allocated security advisor, but these consultations are NOT intended as safety sign-offs for individual risk assessments or travel plans. Any advice given should form part of your own assignment preparation, it should not serve as a replacement for it.
