LEARN

Digital Innovation Labs

Digital Skills for Everyone

Global People Project’s Creatives, Technologists and Entrepreneurs and Producers share their knowledge and skills. Digital Innovation Labs turn users into creators, equipping participants with the ability to harness their digital entrepreneurship and make their ideas happen.

Partnering with film schools, media organisations, social enterprises, SME’s, schools and communities Labs have taken place in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas and provide essential digital innovation skills to maximise creativity and productivity.

Global Citizenship

Intercultural Engagement through Digital Innovation

In a world increasingly characterised by globalised connections, the need for understanding and communication across diverse cultures is stronger than ever.

Global People Project addresses this need with its transmedia approach to Global Citizenship.

This kind of education can contribute to the public good by equipping more global citizens with cultural awareness, a strong sense of civic responsibility and skills to participate in a knowledge-based global economy.

 

PROJECTS

20 Questions

Tens of Thousands of Answers

People from all around the world are asked the same set of universal questions that are relevant to us all, no matter who we are or where we come from.

These range from personal questions about love, fear, death and laughter, to questions about the world we live in, community, innovation and the future.

They are the kind of questions that one interviewee described as ‘questions you instinctively know the answers to but are never asked.’

People speak in their mother tongue and the result is an incredibly diverse collection of professionally filmed answers expressed in over 35 languages; from Malayalam to Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese to Pidgin and French to Fon.

Spaces & Places

New Models of Audience Engagement

In Spaces & Places, interaction with individual voices from a diverse range of cultures is structured around pillars of human emotion and behaviour such as happiness, anger, kindness and violence.

This enables exploration into audience engagement with intercultural awareness, understanding and communication and has a wide range of applications.

Thought Map

Interactive Application showing Patterns of Global Thought

The Thought Map is an application that lets you explore patterns in peoples’ thoughts from around the globe.

You can find out for example, what a Kashmiri farmer has in common with a Tokyo businessman, how a mass killer from Rwanda has similar aspirations to an actress in New York or how a Physics teacher from Beirut shares the same fears as a Burmese landmine victim.

Through the Thought Map you can explore the world through places, people and thoughts, witnessing first-hand the hopes and concerns people share and the nature of their differences.

Thoughtscapes Exhibitions

Turning Gallery Spaces into Participatory Thoughtscapes

Exhibition spaces are transformed into interactive ‘Thoughtscapes’ through digital innovation.

Curated so audiences can navigate the thoughts and experiences of thousands of people from across the globe, the exhibitions mix documentary photography, moving image media and sound in showcases that are both deeply intimate and at the same time universal.

Open Documentary

Increasing Global Impact and Access to All

Stories of globalisation are rarely told at the level of individual people. This timely film places the thoughts and experiences of individuals at the heart of a global narrative.

Spanning six continents, production has taken place in over 100 locations, telling the compelling stories of people from across diverse communities. Experiences range from the extraordinary to the familiar; from exorcisms, voodoo rituals and pow-wow dances to drinking tea, going to the office and swimming in the sea.

Global People Project joins with partners to co-create this living experience of globalisation, identity and open culture.
