New Spaces Available for Amsterdam and London 5 Day Workshops

June 14, 2018

By Eliot Higgins

A small number of new spaces have become available for the following Bellingcat workshops:

Amsterdam June 25th – 29th

London July 2nd – July 6th

London July 9th – July 13th

The workshop will be split into two main sections. The first three days will be dedicated to teaching participants a range of open source investigation skills, with case studies and practical examples focused on topics including conflict, crime, corruption, and fake news. The first two days will focus on investigations of videos and photographic content, and the third day will focus on social media investigation with Henk Van Ess.

The last two days allow participant to apply those skills to topics of their choice, with assistance from the workshop leaders and Bellingcat team members. On the final day, the progress of these projects will be presented to the group and future steps in the investigation will be discussed. Where possible and desirable for the participants, Bellingcat will provide additional help with those investigations after the workshop is concluded.

The intention of the workshop is to teach participants the core skills required for open source investigation, giving them sufficient time with practical examples to develop solid investigative experience, and teach a range of tools and methodologies that can be applied to their own work.

Each workshop is £1800 (including VAT) per person, and this covers the cost of the 5 day workshop. It does not cover participants accommodation or travel costs.
