what is the pwb program?
The PWB Program is at the centre of everything we do. We recognize that storytelling is a crucial component for any nonprofit or NGO to get their message across in today's world, however it is not always accessible to all nonprofits, communities and NGOs.
That's why we focus on partnering with those NGOs and communities in need all over the world who are contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (a list of 17 goals that globally aim to address everything from healthcare, to women's empowerment, to human rights, to sustainability and innovation) and UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The PWB Program is designed to connect the right storytellers to the right partners.
To get started as a storyteller, you'll need to become a member.
How does the PWB Program work?
Membership is for everyone. When you become a Member you not only receive a subscription to our semi-annual, award-winning print magazine, you will also receive a portfolio review and have the opportunity to be shortlisted for our Open Assignments. From there, your journey with the PWB Program begins.
Your storytelling abilities are powerful ways to make change and tell stories that need to be told. PWB uses our platform to share these stories with the world through our Film Series, the PWB Magazine, exhibits, publications, and more. The work of our storytellers have been featured in various other publications including the Huffington Post, Huffington Post Travel, CBC, Rangefinder, National Geographic, The Economist, SLR Lounge, the UN-HABITAT 2013 Handbook, Guttenberg Press, Alternavox, Photo Life, Hart House Camera Club and many others. You can also watch our founder's TEDx talk.
