We (co-)create Impact Journeys and invite and support other documentary visual artists, photographers, journalists, videographers and academics to start their own Journey – an umbrella term for innovative, ‘sparky’ explorative and slightly unconventional projects, based around slow journalism, mixed (participatory) methods with a strong focus on visual storytelling on issues concerning both the Global South and North.
These Journeys take place in the South on a basis of equality, in collaboration with local partners – researchers, photographers, interpreters, etc. The goal is to increase awareness, resulting and pushing for dedicated action amongst a variety of actors.
During our Impact Journeys we will be using a mixed methods approach using the power of media, stories and technology and combine the skills of a wide range of partners – from media outlets, galleries, public spaces, individual expertise, social enterprises and NGOs, to expose the work of our Impact Fellows.
Each Impact Journey will be characterised by a different approach in execution, fundraising and partnership – depending on the location, complexity and duration. We support project ideas in different stages of execution and are particularly interested for visual artists from the Global South. Do you have what it takes and in need for that extra push? Let’s connect!
