exchange to your school

Are you with a grassroots school in an interesting community and can you host an artist safely, fostering cultural exchange?

Aimfully Books partners with organizations and NGOs around the world dedicated to educating their communities. We help introduce art, storytelling and a little bit of entrepreneurship in the process.

How do we do that?

We sponsor traveling artists who immerse themselves in communities worldwide, teaching, sharing, learning, and teaching us back.

It’s a cultural exchange!

Why do we do this? 

In 2012, our uncle was a backpacker. He’s always been passionate about world cultures and communities. In 2016, Tio Diego started building micro-libraries along his travels, providing educational books, from novels to children’s books. He hoped that access to books would spark creativity. He found out that the logistics, expenses, and the ability to follow up were complicated, to say the least. Give a child a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach her how to fish, and you feed her for a lifetime.

So he developed storytelling and art workshops and began teaching us how to make books. Now we take the idea worldwide!

With the help of intrepid artists looking for cultural exchange, we share these workshops where they are needed the most. 

We all can make friends from around the world and learn to express our creativity together!

So the question is…

Can your community host an artist, and can you help organize their workshops? If so, we’d love to sponsor a visit.

Our vetted artists will need a safe space, lodging, and meals. Is it a school you are representing? An after school program? We’ll iron out the details together. No idea is too small or too big.

We will offer lessons on various creative subjects to you and your students with a plan of action and a path to market. Think storytelling, the hero’s journey, and art book creation. 

While we look for undiscovered talent and exciting stories in the far corners of the world, we aim to provide the opportunity for underprivileged artists to get their artbook published. 

We document their journey and share the experience with the world. It’s an experience for everybody!

If you can’t host an artist, you can still apply to get the workshops, host them yourself, and go at your own pace.

Art and storytelling are how we connect with distant communities, generating social impact. Join us!

Nominate your school, apply to host an artist, or self-host our workshops. Get in touch and tell us a little bit about your world!
