Puente Consultorías’ Al Borde project invited Ruxandra to teach an audio documentary storytelling workshop in La Guajira, inside a Wayúu indigenous community on the Colombia-Venezuela border. The Spanish workshop was open to anyone, at any experience level. After a week running around, gathering interviews and other audio, we sat under the light of an almost-full moon amongst dozens of Wayúu children, men and women drinking chicha and listening to the sound-rich pieces.
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 email@example.com and feel free to share with anyone -- especially folks in Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, or other neighboring countries.
We are so thrilled to be a part of this year's Summer Fishtrap, teaching a weeklong workshop called "Getting Others Right: Engaged Documentary Storytelling in Words, Sounds, and Images." If you'll be in the northern Oregon/Idaho border area next week, we hope you can join us on Friday, July 13th!
