Humanitarian Bazaar, founded in 2009, produces creative projects focused on how people survive war and disaster. Our lead project is the War Survivors Advisory through which we are designing a global transmedia platform to help civilian survivors of past wars transfer innovative survival skills offline to those at risk of new wars. How We Survive (premiering in 2019), the feature film-in-development, will tell the story along side that, of the survivor heroes who have innovated and transferred the most impactful designs, tools, and recommendations to save lives. Beyond this, we produced the films, Live from Mogadishu (Somalia 2018), Thunder Spiral (Bosnia/ Afghanistan/ Germany 2018), and Filming Violence (USA 2011), along with the coming web series, Journeys on the Edge (2018). We were also the lead producers of the historic Mogadishu Music Festival (Somalia 2013), Journey of Peace in Dadaab refugee camps (Kenya 2013), and the Somali Sunrise Concert Tour for Peace (USA, Kenya, Somalia 2012-2013), as well as co-producer of Afghanistan’s first rock fest, Sound Central Festival (Afghanistan, 2011).

We are also creative adviser to Matar Productions’ new documentary, Syrian Metal is War (Syria/Netherlands 2018). Our work has been covered by CNNThe New YorkerThe AtlanticRolling StoneWNYC SoundcheckNBCCBS, Aljazeera, LA Times, The Guardian, BBC, and Reuters. We are originally based in Brooklyn, currently in Berlin, and thrive as an international network with a roster of talent in Sarajevo, Mogadishu, Nairobi, Kabul, Istanbul, London, and Amsterdam.
