At the last SM@RT event in Geneva , I presented The Tiziano Project via Jon Vidar, the Tiziano Projects Executive Director, to group of journalists, digital marketers , PR and communciations professional as a project that was breaking new ground in transmedia storytelling and social media from the humanitarian angle. The resulting piece of work the Tiziano project has produced just won an award in the New Media Awards web site awards competition.
I think its worth taking a look at. I do think that convergence media will take lots of forms in the next few years. In the realm of media and photojournalism we are already seeing some profound changes. The Tiziano Project is one of these new media empowerment projects that breaks down distance, misunderstanding and creates a vibrant local voice for Kurdistan.
The Tiziano Project | 360° Kurdistan presents the journalistic efforts and personal accounts of 12 Iraqi citizens living in the Kurdish north alongside the stories of their professional multimedia journalism mentors. This is a documentary effort by The Tiziano Project, which provides new media tools and training to community members in conflict, post-conflict and developing regions.
The purpose of The Tiziano Project | 360° Kurdistan is to provide you with a robust and complete understanding of life, culture and news in present-day Iraqi Kurdistan.
