Welcome to People Are Culture

Inspiring Stories of People Who Create Culture

What is Culture?

We believe people are culture, and connecting is the destination.

And how are we transported on this journey? With stories, the same way humanity has made sense of life since Neolithic man created cave art. Storytelling is in our DNA.

People Are Culture (PAC) is the only online magazine that offers in-depth stories of people from around the world & all walks of life, who each offer powerful insights about their culture and its history. In sharing their heritage and traditions, they also reveal their own transformational life lessons and spiritual practices, world-changing ideas, dramatic adventures, and hard-won wisdom. PAC provides a unique perspective, presenting stories of how culture is created and shared--by allowing people to tell their own stories in their own voices.

While the phenomenon of culture is universal, its meaning is personal. Our interviews and profiles celebrate our unique differences and our shared human condition. We believe we are each special...and we are all the same. We all matter, we each have an incredible story, and everyone has something to teach us.
