A chagra is usually defined as an area of land for growing crops. It represents a dynamic cycle and an ecosystem in which living beings interact and relate to each other.
Traditionally, the chagra has been a space for the transmission of ancestral knowledge and consists of a fundamental manifestation of the connection between humans and nature.
CHAGRA is designed for collective and independent narrators who tell stories and risk their safety on a daily basis to create content about topics that affect their indigenous communities.
Our objective is to create a network of independent visual narrators. This network will increase their ability to illustrate the impact of the armed conflict within their communities and territories, as well as challenges caused by migration and environmental problems. This network aims to achieve a stronger influence on crafting social change narratives that respond to the needs of communities.
40 visual narrators During this training space, 7 proposals will be chosen to participate in a second live training process. This live training process will consist of workshops that are specifically tailored to each thematic area, along with mentoring for their projects from two experts: an expert on working with communities and an expert on visual project development and innovation. We will fund the seven projects and provide assistance through mentorships, web design and programming during a period of four months.
