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.

Apply for Myanmar

 

Myanmar is curled up between the two biggest Asian tigers, China and India. After decades of authoritarian rule, the country is opening up for visitors. After successful projects in 2015 and 2017 in this land of golden temples and forgotten stories, we are returning for another two week training event.

This training event will take you through the country for two weeks. You will be pushed to your limits in photography, journalism and visual storytelling. Whether you are a young professional, a committed amateur or a student looking for advanced field experience, with this workshop you will get the opportunity to personally meet and learn from incredible mentors such as the renowned documentary photographer Andre Malerba.
