La Vida de Nos Itinerante

Jul 31, 2019

La vida de nos Itinerante is a workshop program that seeks to train journalists, photographers and human rights activists from across the country in narrative journalism and the resources it has to offer, and provide them with tools to create stories from events that take place in their own regions. It is a learning experience for all in this country that we are now and are becoming.


Convinced as we are of the importance of telling stories to showcase the realities of ordinary people into a tapestry of testimonies about contemporary Venezuela, La vida de nos Itinerante aims to train storytellers through a process of intensive several-day workshops held in the regions themselves and equip them with  journalistic and narrative skills to discover and write meaningful stories that tell the country’s current state of affairs and how this crisis is endured in their respective regions.

In one sentence, it is about training gazes and voices to tell the present moment from the perspective of our diverse geography.

During this first stage, we have offered four workshops (Puerto Ordaz, Barinas, Barquisimeto and Puerto La Cruz) in which we trained 44 journalists, activists, photographers and videographers as narrators, all of whom have written stories based on their regions’ events and who will become regular collaborators of La vida de nos. This first stage covered a total of 16 states.
