Dan Archer

Freelance (UK)
Comic artist

Dan Archer is a graphic journalist who uses comics and immersive storytelling to report on human rights issues in situations where video or photographic equipment is inappropriate or, at worst, traumatic for those involved. Archer is a 2014 Reynolds Journalism Institute Fellow and was a 2011 Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University, where he also taught non-fiction graphic novel writing 2008-14. He has produced information campaigns in comics format for many international NGOs, including World Education, Save the Children and ECPAT Luxembourg, and from 2012-14 was Co-PI on a major project funded by the US State Department to measure the impact of different forms of visual media in low literacy communities across Nepal. In 2014 he was awarded the EIC/Maynard Institute grant for mental health reporting for his comic on affordable housing for the mentally ill homeless community in San Francisco, published in the San Francisco Public Press. His current work explores the crossover of interactive comics with virtual reality, one example of which was the virtual reality reconstruction of the Michael Brown shooting that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014. His work has been published by the BBC, CBC, VICE magazine, Fusion, San Francisco Public Press, American Public Media, Truthout and PBS among others and was featured in the BBC’s Future of News Report, which came out in January 2015.
