Instituto Dois Irmãos
  • Instituto Dois Irmãos Two Brothers Institute
  • Workshops in social documentation for children ages 6 - 12 in the community of Rocinha, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The workshops were facilitated by Ana Dillon at the nonprofit Instituto Dois Irmãos. Each week the students were asked to make first person reports on the places they found most interesting in their community. The acquisition of digital story telling skills provides students with opportunities to share their own perspectives on their community that will challenge mainstream media perspectives that focus on gang related criminality in Rocinha. A story about the project that appeared on CNN International iReport and CNN.com included their footage.
