What are the stories that dominate the public narrative about life on the border? Who tells them? Who listens? Which stories aren’t being told? What are the perspectives of young people on culture, politics, people, heritage, everyday life in Ambos Nogales. This is the heart of DocuNogales, youth documenting stories of where they live.
Launched in spring of 2019, this 12-week after-school program giving Nogales youth opportunities to share their own stories of life on the border through photography, video, and interviews.
Spring 2019 instructors:
Javier “Gio” Brambila (photograph/video)
Kimi Eisele (writing/interviewing)
Dr. Maribel Alvarez (guest instruction: folklife)
Cesar Lopez (program coordination)
