Stories of Change

The Crossing

Alisa acted as the primary liaison between Tostan and Venice Arts during the two-week particpant-led filmmaking workshop, Stories of Change. She created the budget, organised logistics, coordinated translations and subtitles, and participated as a crew member in the film The Crossing. The workshop resulted in three short videos in which community members share their stories about community protection, girls' education, and inter-ethnic marriage.

Tostan is a human rights-based non-profit organisation operating in six West African countries. The workshop was facilitated by Venice Arts, a California-based media organisation, and funded by the  Sundance Institute, the Skoll Foundation, and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
