doing things with stories

welcome to DoKumento

about us

Storytelling is an elementary mode to transfer knowledge across cultures and generations. Nowadays information flows at incredible pace. DoKumento considers that certain stories need more time to mature and appeal specific publics. This interdisciplinary platform aims to generate and exchange accessible stories that surprise us and pave the way for new insights about pressing contemporary social, political and cultural matters. The purpose of DoKumento is to creatively divulge unfamiliar themes through interdisciplinary narrative projects like film, creative writing and non-fiction that will stimulate cross-cultural debate. Eva van Roekel founded DoKumento in 2013 in Amsterdam. Its current members are Mariet Paes, Mieke Gresnigt and Matías Cordiviola.
