Wildscreen Manchester is Coming this October! By Wildscreen
4 August 2017
Symbiotic Stories is an event for conservation organisations and visual storytellers.
For those who have stories that need to be told, and those who recognise their lens as one of the most powerful tools to tell them. Taking shape through keynote sessions and masterclasses, the day will explore creative examples and practical techniques in the crafting of natural world stories that reach diverse audiences and generate real change.
Curated for conservationists, photographers and filmmakers the programme will unearth how to make the most out of available resources and how joining forces can drive impact and maximise reach.
There will be ample opportunities for networking and cross-pollination between sessions and at the evening reception.
In keeping with the theme of the day, this event will be held in Manchester to open up Wildscreen and delegates to new and wider audiences.
We are pleased to welcome creator of 21 Icons and Beautiful News, keynote speaker Adrian Steirn is well versed at using powerful imagery to tell positive and engaging stories. Steirnís work is defined by his commitment to using visual images as a means to stimulate discussion and action around key social issues. His films and photographs have been used for campaigns aimed at raising awareness and creating change in partnership with WWF and The Global Fund.
The day will also include a unique and privileged first look at an exciting new international project launching in October headed up by award winning photographer Britta Jaschinski. We will also be joined by Geospatial Technologist of Google Ed Parsons, Wildscreen Exchange and Panasonic who will be delivering a variety of masterclasses.
Julian Hector, head of the BBC Natural History Unit and Monica Hayes will outline how conservation organisations can amplify messaging around BBC landmark series.
Wildscreen Manchester will take place on Thursday 19 October at Victoria Warehouse.
