The digital age has profoundly transformed the way people find and share information. The Internet is enabling collaboration between activists, hackers and journalists on an unprecedented scale. This has led to previously unimaginable possibilities in investigative reporting. People are newly empowered to uncover hidden information, expose corruption and bring the truth to light.
Through a series of short films, Exposing the Invisible tells the personal stories of those working at the new frontiers of investigation.
We explore their tools and methods and learn how they manage the risks of information activism. The project also offers a range of resources to help activists protect themselves and their work.
We hope that Exposing the Invisible will inspire a new generation of people committed to transparency and accountability.
New movies will be uploaded to our website regularly. If you have suggestions or projects you would like to tell us about, please come andtalk to usor check out when ascreeningmight be going on near you, or how to host one yourself.
This project would not have been made possible without our sponsors and all the people who have contributed.
Your work as an investigator starts with the evidence you have. But where should you be looking for it? What are the databases and tools you should keep in mind? Here, we give you resources to answer those questions.
