EPIX

We are an arts and social venture with the mission of connecting Venezuelans through each others’ stories.

We tell stories with portraits and testimonies. In them we meet and we recognise ourselves in the other.

We generate empathy that transforms and strengthens our culture, and builds new opportunities.

EPIX PORTFOLIO

A printed set of the photos and testimonies of 100 Venezuelan stories representing our culture and traditions.

EMERGENTES PROJECT

We are working with organisations and NGOs to show that we are more than just the sum of our individual parts.

HOW IT WORKS

A team of photographers and writers interview hundreds of people and work in pairs to narrate the story of each one using portraits and testimonies.

We publish it on our website along with hundreds of stories so you can read them, and receive them printed at your doorstep.

Each told story builds culture and
opportunities for many venezuelans.

WHY WE DO IT

Through our stories we meet and recognise each other. We identify with the other and feel empathy.

Empathy generates unity, collaboration and understanding, and from these the opportunities to build humanity, society, country and culture are born.

EPIX IS THE SPACE THAT PROMOTES EMPATHY FOR THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We offer photography, writing and design seminars and workshops to children and young Venezuelans.

The 1st photography workshop and the 1st Epix writing workshop will be held in partnership with the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello for young people from the surrounding communities.

CULTURAL IMPACT

Dozens of Venezuelan stories are going around the world through our website, exhibitions, events and publications.

We want Venezuelans to have a space to reconnect with their culture and people.

To date, we have held exhibitions at:

NEW YORK – PARIS – BOGOTÁ
CITY OF MEXICO – CHICAGO – CARACAS
SANTIAGO DE CHILE – MADRID – GENEVA
FRANKFURT – BARCELONA
