Storytelling

The Caravan's Journal is a global network of correspondents and creators. Our dream is to increase understanding and empathy across borders. To achieve that aim, we employ two strategies.

Firstly, we invite Europe's young and most passionate storytellers to international training events to learn from their colleagues across the world. Journalists, photographers, academics, artists and other storytellers can participate. We select locations that challenge everyone to dig deep and learn fast. The participants receive masterclasses from the best mentors and experts while working on productions and collaborations of their own. For more information, visit Caravan.

On the other hand, our independent storytellers travel the world in search of those stories that shine a light on the complex systems and dynamics of the global society. By talking to real people living in challenging times and telling their story, we aim to make the big issues in world politics more human and comprehensible. Our work features topics that otherwise receive far too little attention in Western Europe. Those who are curious for the narratives we have collected, take a look at Journal.
