storytellers project logo

Storytellers is a project that creates sustainable tourism through a social and transformative perspective. An initiative that impacts lives where people in situations of vulnerability learn English and other skills to become independent and connect with opportunities.

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.

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.

Currently, our Storytellers have tours in:

Comuna 13 - San Javier

Comuna 13 has now transformed as a local tourism destination thanks to the original graffiti artists and the Storytellers offering tours in English.

In what was one of the most dangerous places in the city and the country fifteen years ago, a story of transformation is born, told through graffiti. 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.

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