Are You Interested in Different Cultures?

People Are Culture reports on different cultures around the world and our shared humanity with real personal stories. We celebrate how people are each unique and also all share the human condition.

We offer in-depth reporting that reveals the history and character of places with personal accounts from local people, many of whom are cultural standard-bearers, artisans and changemakers. People Are Culture gives you actual insights of people on their own culture that is unique and cannot be created by AI. We also explore cultural universals, ways in which every society is alike.

We share with you exclusive interviews and feature articles that can:

  • Offer insights into a place you are studying;
  • Fulfill your curiosity about the history and lifestyles of people from other places;
  • Deepen your understanding of the human condition and our connection to each other;
  • Help you connect with your heritage;
  • Expand your knowledge about a cultural practice you are passionate about and;
  • Inform a trip you are planning.

If you are seeking a deep dive into the authentic culture of a place and people, we have the meaningful context you are looking for.

We go beyond listicles that provide superficial and generic information that you can find on a million other websites. With our thoughtful and original content, you can make a genuine human connection.

The Person and Story Behind People Are Culture

Hi, I'm Meg Pier, founder of the People Are Culture website, and co-founder of Flip the Lens YT channel. Thanks for visiting!

Exploring the human condition we all share and how it is expressed in cultures around the world is a lifelong passion, labor of love and calling for me.

My aspiration is that People Are Culture and Flip the Lens inspire people to start conversations, ask questions, and be interested in others. I hope you find the more than 200 personal stories that people have shared with me as meaningful as I do.
