Digital Safety Training for Artists and Human Rights Defenders

Digital technologies are transforming the world, affording artists and human rights defenders new platforms to display and promote their work. However, such realities have also posed threats to artists and advocates, ranging from government surveillance and censorship of online platforms, to intimidation by internet trolls, to hacking of artists’ online content and personal data. Drawing from the Artists at Risk Connection’s “Safety Guide for Artists,” this training session will dive into these threats, and offer strategies to help individuals mitigate and prevent risk by bolstering their cybersecurity practices. It will pay particular attention to online harassment such as hate speech, threats, impersonation, doxing, and message bombing, equipping artists and advocates with an understanding of how and why online harassment occurs, how to prepare for and react to it, and how to establish a cybercommunity.
