We are a Peruvian nonprofit that leverages participatory storytelling tools and community-based research approaches to engage learners and educators in fishing villages in gaining and contributing to a kaleidoscopic understanding of their social-ecological systems in a changing climate and industrializing planet. Through “edutainment” workshops, programs, and festivals, we provide tools, mediums, and spaces to foster enchantment as an embodied encounter that establishes relations between peoples and places and significantly expands our understanding of time and space beyond the self.
We make white papers dirty by collaborating with social and natural scientists “in the field “who seek to discuss their ideas with local youth, engaging students to learn alongside them. Students conduct their own research and mobilize knowledge gathered by co-creating animations, films, photo series, maps, and more with their teachers rooted in cultural heritage, fortified by science, and expressed through learners’ imaginations. These creative productions share findings and ideas to spark conversation and shape collaborative change.
