John Smock to Teach Visual Storytelling to Journalists in Libya
Photojournalism instructor John Smock, a consultant for Small World News, is working on a project to provide media training in Libya for local journalists in advance of the country’s June election. The election will put a national committee in place as a first step toward a new constitution and a general election.
Smock will teach visual storytelling techniques. He and the Small World News team will work with a variety of broadcast journalists and new outlets in Tripoli and several other cities throughout Libya. Qatar-based DOHA Centre for Media Freedom awarded Small World News a grant for the project.
Smock has done similar election coverage training in Egypt, Cambodia, and Afghanistan.
