@ JW Marriott Austin

2nd & Congress
Austin TX  78701



Join us at SXSW 2018 for our an interactive panel, How Technology Can Save the Yazidi Community, presented in collaboration with Elefint.

In this hands-on workshop you will work with Yazidi activist Deelan Dakhil, to envision and plan a digital platform or archive to document the genocide of the Yazidi people. The Yazidis are a minority group that has been singled out for persecution by ISIS, but whose current struggles rarely make the headlines. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about building solutions for good to help the Yazidi community document atrocities and preserve victims’ testimonies.
