World Story Exchange

World Story Exchange partners with schools and educational organizations to offer documentary story creation workshops to youth and groups of individuals.  Our workshops invite students to explore their lives, their dreams, their concerns, while finding their creative voice using a variety of media tools and artistic approaches.  We teach photography, filmmaking, writing, painting and drawing - all from a documentary perspective with ethnographic ethics.

 

The students' finished stories, with permission, are then shared with their local community before being shared with a group of students in another part of the world.  The second group of students then responds by making their own documentary stories through a World Story Exchange workshop.  

 

In this way students learn about the world not from mass-media representations, but directly from the eyes and minds of their peers.  Our workshops provide a space for young people to think critically about their communities, to imagine change, and to value their ideas for how the world could be.
