Ali Arkady worked on the Farman 74 project for three years starting in August 2014. He also joined the VII Mentor program in 2014, the same year the war started in Iraq with ISIS. He himself acted as a mentor for Yezidi girls who survived being held as hostages by ISIS for two years. In this lecture, Ali discusses how he covered a war as a long-term project, and offers practical advice on how you can protect yourself in a conflict situation.
This lecture was originally hosted at VII Interactive, a new resource for sharing insights and information on the craft of visual storytelling. We are building different platforms within the VII ecosystem, where the public can engage directly, online with a live instructor. VII Interactive offers programming that is free and available to everyone, in addition to paid classes and individual mentoring that can be fashioned to your needs.
