Johis Alarcón receives CatchLight Global Fellowship Grant

Johis Alarcón has been named as one of three recipients of this year’s prestigious CatchLight Global Fellowship grant for her ongoing work on Indigenous Amazonian women in her native Ecuador.

The grant allows fellows to “develop long-form storytelling projects, connect with audiences, and cultivate audience engagement through inventive distribution methods that will increase their impact”.

We congratulate Johis on her receipt of the grant and look forward to seeing the next chapters of her important work.
