The results of the SXSW Panel Picker have been announced! Ed Kashi will be participating in a panel “Strategic Storytelling: Video As Policy Changer” at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in March 2016. The panel will explore how advocates, visual storytellers, lawyers, and artists can combine expertise to unravel the web of policies and practices that create an inherently unfair criminal justice system for poor people and minorities. It will consider the social impact storytelling strategies have on these issues and the potential for their use on a much broader scale. Alongside Adam Stofsky of the New Media Advocacy Project, artist and journalist Molly Crabapple, and Hannah McCrea of Brooklyn Defender Services, Ed will be addressing, among other topics, how media and storytelling can help to put the voices and stories of people affected by broken policies at the center of reform efforts. The festival will take place in Austin, TX from March 11-15.
