Be interviewed by us.
What does an interview with us entail?
At Impact Human, we believe storytelling is a vehicle for social change and outreach education. We do that through photography, interviews, and policy research - to help increase awareness on how climate and environmental injustices are impacting communities.
In most cases, interviews should last somewhere between 20 - 40 minutes. You will be photographed, as photography is a key element to our work. All interviewees are required to sign and fill out a 'Photo & Interview Release' form on the day. This allows us to share your story and photos of you, making you a part of our novel work.
Sample Interview Questions:
Where were you when [event] happened?
How did [specific issue] affect you?
Are you or your family still affected by the impact of [specific issue]?
How long did it take for your family to recover?
Do you think your community was prepared for the [event / issue] before it happened?
Moving forward, do you think your community is better prepared for future [events / issues]?
What do you think could have been done to mitigate the impacts of [event / issue]?
