Travel with Actuality Abroad and learn to tell stories that matter.

In every location, we focus on stories about changemakers working to solve social or environmental problems in their community. Travelers work together in creative crews to produce short documentary films. Through on-location research and interviews, our creative crews learn to listen and seek to understand. The authenticity of the ethical documentary experience allows greater connection to a place and more meaningful work to be produced.
