Latin America: Improve Interactive Storytelling and Create a Corps of Tech-savvy Women in Newsrooms
Knight International Journalism Fellow Mariana Santos is creating teams of artists, developers and journalists to improve visual and interactive storytelling in Latin American media. This network will enrich story development, execution and digital delivery of news. Santos is introducing animation and other ways to use data in compelling ways in Brazil, Chile, and Costa Rica. A key goal is to create a corps of tech-savvy women in Latin American newsrooms. She is also helping to develop guides on data visualization for the PeriodismodeDatos.org project led by Knight International Journalism Fellow Miguel Paz in Chile.
