Program Description

DATES (10 weeks) Jan, Feb, Mar. / May, June, July / Sept, Oct, Nov.
Join us to execute photo- or video-documentary focused projects that celebrate our natural and cultural surroundings. As a member of our media documentation team, you’ll lend your artistic voice to our public image and multimedia presentations, and you’ll be a key communicator of our story of biocultural renewal to the world through our website and social networks. With a growing playground of nearly 12,000 acres in one of the worlds top 20 ecological hot spots, your time with Experience Mamoni will surely provide media and journalism opportunities to rival the likes of National Geographic.
You will become familiar with the process behind visual media creation; starting with research and information gathering, getting into scriptwriting, to editing and sharing the results with the world.
Our projects provide unique opportunities for professionals looking to broaden their portfolio or for the highly self-motivated newcomers seeking to easily learn hands-on. Based primarily at our Centro Mamoní Campus, you will be a major contributor to our resident community.
