WHAT IS THE SCHOOL OF SLOW MEDIA?

The School of Slow Media (SoSM) is a media training that transforms leaders, creatives and changemakers into mindful listeners and effective storytellers.

Make a Documentary


In 3 to 10 days, your team of local and foreign storytellers will produce a documentary. You will plan, film, and edit powerful short docs that showcase everyday human stories. By documenting your creative process from beginning to end you will put design thinking into practice.

WE BEGIN BY POSITIONING THE HUMAN BEING AT THE CENTER OF STORYTELLING  

At the School of Slow Media we focus on the common space between us (the "storytellers"), our audience, and the people we film. We call this process: Human-Centered Storytelling (HCS)

Instead of sensationalizing negative conflict (for example, poverty, violence, horror), we listen to the everyday lives of the people in our stories as our starting point.  This humanizing approach makes SoSM a unique training where mindfulness and listening are essential practices in the craft of storytelling.
