In a little more than a month, Ruxandra will be teaching a podcasting and documentary storytelling workshop in La Guajira, inside a Wayúu indigenous community on the Colombia-Venezuela border. It'll be in Spanish and open to anyone, at any experience level. It'll cost $500 per person for the week, including lodging, breakfast, dinner, and local transport. If you're interested, please contact us or Puente Consultorías at firstname.lastname@example.org and feel free to share with anyone -- especially folks in Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, or other neighboring countries.
South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie is our latest multi-platform storytelling project that will launch September 2018, exploring the past, present, and future of the Bowtie through personal stories and research findings. It'll unfold through a photography exhibition at Occidental College, five podcast episodes and three public discussions.
