Since its founding more than 130 years ago, National Geographic has been instrumental in the evolution of storytelling by pushing the boundaries of how critical knowledge is collected and shared. From our base at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., get an inside look at National Geographic headquarters to see how this organization harnesses the power of visual media and journalism to effect change on a global scale; and work with photo editors, videographers, and a public speaking coach to create compelling media of your own design.
Travel to Washington, D.C. and settle into your dormitory at Georgetown University. The workshop will be led by instructors who have experience in the themes of our program: Multimedia Journalism, Visual Storytelling, and National Geographic: Past and Present. Each day begins with a hands-on workshop or field project followed by a discussion-based seminar to further apply what we’ve learned. Our instructors will guide us through each activity and facilitate workshops and discussions with National Geographic experts and explorers. We’ll have inside access to National Geographic headquarters; and Georgetown University—located within steps of trendy shops and lively restaurants—will serve as our classroom as we build the skills necessary to tell stories that make a difference.”
