Storyteller from Comuna 13 showing graffiti in San Javier Medellin
storytellers project logo

Storytellers is a project that supports sustainable tourism through a community and social transformative framework.

Rewarded the Recon Colombia award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2019 in the category of Peace and Human development, this project helps empower people in situations of vulnerabity to take control of their circumstances and connect with opportunity.

Since 2016 we have cocreated with communities in Medellín and around Colombia to help them be storytellers (local tour guides) or use the platform to empower their initiatives and entrepreneurships.

Our guides choose to actively support the social project where they received their storyteller formation

Currently, our Storytellers have tours in:

Comuna 13 - San Javier

Local Comuna 13 residents share their stories of transformation as a marginalised community that converted into an amazing tourism destination thanks to the artistic expression of graffiti artists and the formation of Storytellers offering tours in English and empowering local initiatives.

In what was one of the most dangerous places in the city and the country fifteen years ago, a story of transformation and resilience is shared by the community. The history and culture of the commune are transmitted step by step, until you reach a taste of the local cuisine: homemade ice cream with Colombian fruits.

Motivated individuales have developed skills and acquired inspiring stories from Santo Domingo (Commune 1), San Javier (Commune 13) and Moravia (Commune 4), and they have transformed into protagonists and narrators of the history of their neighborhoods. They have also been developing rich cultural immersion experiencies to help people connect to Colombian culture and have an amazing visit. We’ve expanded the reach of this project using our local guides around the city in different comunas and are reaching out nationally to provide opportunities to other communities.

With this project we seek to visibilise the stories of our community, share our passion for the territory and through our own journeys and life stories be empowered to create sustainable change.
