The Rich Coast Project
701 East Moody Drive
The Rich Coast Project is a participatory research, storytelling and digital archiving project dedicated to protecting the land rights and cultural heritage of the people of the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
Our mission is to build a platform for the collection and dissemination of historical information relating to the identity and history of the area’s inhabitants and to improve access to the legal information necessary for securing local rights to property and natural resources.
Our vision is to create a replicable model of community-based human rights advocacy that uses storytelling and digital archiving to foster community resilience, empower citizen engagement, and increase access to information so that local communities may have a meaningful stake in their history and their future.
