We meet writers in breathtaking destinations around the world for reading, writing, wellness, and inspiration. Celebrating the art of narrative and place, we host global experiences for the literati. These experiences may take shape as an international retreat or a local exhibition where contemporary art meets classic lit. We are a brand new community established in February 2018, serving writers and wanderers who love getting lost in a good story or on the winding roads to far away places. Each adventure is curated to reflect the culture or locale in which we are engaged. We are based in Amsterdam, but you can join us wherever you find yourself on the map.

our Founder

Each Story Rebels experience is designed by Malika Ali Harding - a travel writer and photographer with an interdisciplinary background in cinema and contemporary art. Working in collaboration with thought leaders in letters and oral storytelling, she aims to advance understanding of narrative forms by providing the public with opportunities to engage in story based adventures. Each of our programs supports and spotlights our social justice platform - fortifying organizations that fight the epidemic of mass incarceration in the United States.
