Actuality Abroad leads purpose-driven travel experiences with a focus on ethical, collaborative documentary storytelling. In each location we visit, we partner with locally-led changemaking organizations and create documentary stories that amplifies their work. Together, we co-create a dynamic learning communities for aspiring or experienced storytellers to engage in uncommon and ongoing education abroad.
Empowering Travelers: By giving travelers the opportunity to engage in citizen storytelling, documentary tours can empower them to become agents of change, using their voice and their experiences to create awareness and promote advocacy around the issues being addressed.
Raising Awareness: Citizen storytelling can be a powerful tool for raising awareness about social issues, particularly for those who might not have had direct exposure to the issues being addressed. By sharing the stories of those who are directly affected by these issues, citizen storytellers can help to create empathy and understanding among a wider audience.
Promoting Advocacy: Citizen storytelling can also be an effective way to promote advocacy and inspire action around key social issues. By sharing their stories with others, citizen storytellers can inspire others to get involved in the fight for social change.
Building Community: Citizen storytelling can also be a way to build community, both among travelers on the tour and with the social impact organizations they visit. By engaging with staff members, volunteers, and community members, travelers can build meaningful connections that can last beyond the tour itself.
Creating Lasting Impact: Perhaps most importantly, citizen storytelling can create lasting impact by giving voice to those who might not have had the opportunity to share their story otherwise. By highlighting the work of social impact organizations and the experiences of the communities they serve, citizen storytellers can help to create change that lasts long after the tour is over.
