When & Where
Global Lives Project
The mission of the Global Lives Project is to collaboratively build an open video library of human life experience that reshapes how we as both producers and viewers conceive of cultures, nations and people outside of our own communities.
We envision a world where all human lives have equal value, and where people on the opposite sides of the planet see and treat each other as though they were neighbors.
