As part of a new NOOR Experience event during IDFA, NOOR and the NOOR Foundation invite artists, designers, researchers, documentary makers, and the general public to reflect on the developments around new media and storytelling. The new Digital World is characterised by virtual reality, augmented reality, online platforms and new visual and technological possibilities. How do new forms of media change documentary and photography? And how can we measure the impact of these new ways of storytelling?

Steyn Hoogakker

Steyn Hoogakker is the Founder Director of Impact Journey, a project founded on the urgency and necessity for a sustainable transition in order to combat (rising) inequality, climate change and to overcome the huge misunderstanding and misrepresentation of ‘the other’. Impact Journey tries to encourage sustainable behaviour and mutual understanding and equality by (co-)creating and facilitating Impact Journeys in the Global South, with a strong focus on visual storytelling.

Christiaan Triebert

Christiaan Triebert is a conflict researcher with Bellingcat, a multi-award winning collective that uses online open source information to investigate armed conflicts and corruption. Among a wide variety of topics, Triebert has especially focused on investigating airstrikes in the Middle East, also in his capacity as geolocation expert for monitoring organisation Airwars. His digital reconstruction of the Turkish coup d’état attempt won the Innovation Award of the European Press Prize.

Topaz Adizes

Topaz Adizes is an award-winning writer, director and storyteller. His interactive documentary {THE AND} won an Emmy for New Approaches to Documentary 2015 as well as the World Press Photo award for Best Interactive Documentary 2015. {THE AND} was also a viral sensation reaching #1 on Reddit and Buzzfeed and experienced by over 35 million users in over 144 countries, featured on the CBS Morning show and Good Morning America and selected to numerous international digital storytelling competitions.

Ziv Schneider

As an artist and designer, Ziv Schneider (Raycaster studio) works at the intersection of documentary, video games and volumetric photography and combines various design practices to explore how new technologies enrich narratives with spatialization and interaction. She holds a master from NYU’s ITP program (’15), where she now teaches interactive non-fiction. Since creating The Museum of Stolen Art in 2014, she’s been working primarily in virtual reality and created several other museum experiences, including the first virtual reality experience released by the Economist RecoVR:Mosul, a virtual tour of the reconstructed Mosul Museum in Iraq.

Maartje Nevejan

Maartje Nevejan is an award winning independent filmmaker based in Amsterdam, with a background in theatre and multi media. In her projects she likes to research the (raw) poetic quality of reality. Nevejan is also a changemaker and a innovative social interpreneur. She loves to hangout where “realities rhyme”. For years Nevejan travelled the outside world, documenting people, mainly teenagers and young adults, within the social political realm, for digital and TV networks both national as worldwide for Al Jazeera. The last few years her focus is on mapping the inner world of people with her projects, combining art, science and technology. She is now working on finding a visual language for the inner experience of epilepsy seizures by kids and young adults, in a trans-media project called: If You Are Not There, Where Are You?

Noa Jansma

Noa Jansma (20 years) is born and raised in Amsterdam,
Currently she’s in her 2nd year of the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Leisure Department.
Although her art and designs are brodaly themed,  the female body is an often recurring theme.

2 months ago she made a project to create awareness about street harrasement, (catcalling), which went viral just before  #metoo.

Noa made an instagram account whereby she took selfies with her catcallers for one month. The account got a lot of international attention  and now has around 350.000 followers and several upcoming international exhibitions. People from all over the world are sharing their personal stories with Noa, how to handle this amount of impact?
