From November 13th – 17th, 2023, founder and director of Association Anoulak Camille, a National Geographic Explorer, was invited to attend a National Geographic Storytelling Collective workshop in Hong Kong. The workshop was offered by the Storytellers Collective – a new initiative from the National Geographic Society that provides hands-on workshops to harness the power of storytelling.
In this three-day workshop from the Storytellers Collective, 25 regional National Geographic Explorers learnt to shape their core narrative into its most effective form and gain the skills and confidence to share their work with the world. Guided by a National Geographic Explorer and a regional expert on social media, we focused on honing our core story and the art of creating, curating, and captioning powerful images.
As part of the workshop, each participant had to design a visual story about their work, including photos and videos. The take-away learning of the workshop will be applied to our communication about our work.
