---------------------

Alice Driver is a bilingual journalist based in Mexico City. Her narrative non-fiction, feature writing & audio work have appeared in National Geographic, Time, CNN, Cosmopolitan, Outside, Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, Longreads, and NBC News. In 2017, Driver was invited by the Nobel Women’s Initiative to join Nobel Laureates Jody Williams, Shirin Ebadi, Tawakkol Karman, and Rigoberta Menchú as they traveled to Guatemala and Honduras to highlight the work of human rights activists in indigenous communities. In 2019, she worked with Chinese neorealist painter Liu Xiaodong and his documentary team along the US-Mexico border, and the results of that work, including the catalog for the exhibit that Driver is writing, will be shown at Dallas Contemporary museum in 2020.
