Founded in 2004, the Global Lives Project serves as a video library of life experiences across more than 17 countries. The project explores the diversity of human experience through uncut video footage and encourages discussion, reflection, and inquiry about the wide variety of cultures, ethnicities, languages, and religions on this planet. Ultimately, Global Lives seeks to foster empathy and cross-cultural understanding.
Today, the Global Lives Project showcases 24 hours in the daily life of 20 people from 17 countries around the world ranging from a college student in Tokyo and a traveling clown in Spain to a sand barge worker living in Vietnam. These exhibits display raw footage from the various shoots as they go about 24 consecutive hours in their lives.
To learn more about this project, come see our video installation at the CITRIS Tech Museum on Cal Day, April 21, 2018. The CITRIS and the Banatao Institute’s Tech Museum in Sutardja Dai Hall will be open for self-guided tours of the Global Lives Project with free admission. To delve deeper into this discussion, visit at noon to meet, Global Lives founder and executive director, David Evan Harris. He will be on hand to reflect and engage in conversation about the range of cultures, ethnicities, languages and religions in the modern world. Event details are listed below:
