The aim of this Storytelling Expedition is to document the stories behind the women-led cooperatives of Morocco. We will learn about the struggles and successes of women who have liberated themselves from financial dependency on men, in a conservative society and in rural areas. Our group of travelers will become a crew of citizen storytellers and work together to create a library of digital media assets that Morocco Social Impact Travels and the Cooperatives can utilize to help further their mission. The videos and photos we create will be used by the Cooperatives to effectively share their story with potential partners, buyers and tourists. Morocco Social Impact Travels will also use the media to promote tourism experiences in their country.
Each day of the storytelling project will provide opportunities for conducting interviews, arranging photo sessions and documenting what you encounter in Morocco. The ‘deliverables’ that our crew produces may include micro-documentaries, social media video clips, photo essays, event photos, photo portraits, video interviews, photo galleries and anything else we determine could be valuable to our partners.
An Actuality producer will be on location providing mentorship, training and support as needed. You can contribute with your existing media-making talents or use the opportunity to expand your skills. Every traveler will receive in-depth training in ethical, collaborative story sharing. Together we will learn how to become more conscious and responsible storytellers, travelers and humans.
