Lives in Transit at Harvard (Spring 2018)
February 27 - March 31
Inside the Harvard Science Center is where you can find the Global Lives Project Lives in Transit series of the exhibit
Lives in Transit, a collection of raw footage from the lives of individuals around the world, is now on display in Cambridge at the Harvard Science Center! The Berkman Klein Center at Harvard functions to explore the relationship between internet and civic activity and use internet technologies to connect, teach, learn, and make information accessible. Similarly, Global Lives Project is designed to cultivate empathy across cultures, build bridges and foster connections among diverse communities via trans-media methods.
In today’s world, the range of cultures, ethnicities, languages, and religions is so incredibly diverse, however we often dismiss the importance of understanding different cultures and lives beyond our local community.
Through the efforts of UC Berkeley alumnus and Center for Social Sector Leadership professor David Evan Harris as well as the loose-knit network of volunteers around the globe, the Global Lives Project serves to foster this sense of global empathy and cross-cultural understanding. The unusual transparency of Global Lives allows viewers to reflect upon the larger world with an invitation to spark discussion and inquiry.
