The Belonging Project Explores Our Human Need to Connect
In today’s global world we are more connected than ever before...and yet, paradoxically, many of us often feel more alone, alienated, different, and less-than.
The human need to feel connected is unmistakably universal - even if we each experience it in a uniquely personal way. As instinctive as it is to want to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, there is no one among us who hasn't at one point or another felt disconnected, unheard, and on the outside looking in.
People Are Culture's Belonging Project is an antidote to that sense of disconnection. The video series looks at everyday situations, circumstances, interactions, and emotions that affect our sense of belonging. We ask people to share an experience that defines what belonging means to them.
People Are Culture's Belonging Project invites conversation about the human need to belong--and shares real life experiences of people. We believe the best way to connect with anyone is to ask questions, to listen, to seek to identify and not compare. That way, we’re able to find meaning not only in ourselves, but in each other as well.
You may find meaning in your family, friends, your passions, or even in advocacy. Whatever belonging looks like for you, we invite you to participate in the People Are Culture “Belonging Project”! Read on to find out how!
Ask someone you know these three questions:
- What does belonging look like to you?
- Can you describe a time when you felt like you belonged?
- Can you describe a time when you felt like you really didn’t belong?
