The goal of this Storytelling Expedition is to help document the work and wisdom of leaders and experts within Fundación En Vía.
Our group of travelers will become a crew of citizen storytellers and work together to create a library of digital media assets that Fundacíon En Via can utilize to help further their mission. Each traveler can contribute with their existing media-making skills and also take the opportunity to learn new ones. An Actuality producer/mentor/coach will be on location providing guidance and support as needed.
To kick off the project, our crew will meet with En Via leadership to figure out how to best support their work through our role as storytellers. Each day of the storytelling project will provide opportunities for conducting interviews, arranging photo sessions and documenting the real life of Oaxacan changemakers and culturekeepers. 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.
Every traveler will receive in-depth training in ethical, collaborative story sharing. Together we will learn how to become more conscious and responsible media makers.
At the end of the expedition, Actuality Abroad will handle the editing and finishing of all media assets, although travelers are welcome to stay involved after they return home. All completed stories will be licensed under Creative Commons so that all collaborators have access to share the content far and wide
