What is the Ubuntu Project?

A global exploration of people, stories and connection.

How do we humans connect? How do we decide who we like and who we don't like? Who we'll offer help to and who's needs we'll ignore?

In order for us to connect with one another, we need to know one another. In order to know one another we need to have conversations, to share stories, to really understand what lies beneath the surface and discover the human-ness in all of us.

Inspired by the South African philosophy of Ubuntu, I am who I am because of who we all are, The Ubuntu Project is a celebration of this human-ness; a global exploration of people, stories and connection

The Ubuntu Project aims to promote a sense of unity and respect and highlight that, despite our differences, we are all part of the same human race. 

Why? To learn, appreciate, connect and care more about people living in our global community.

Watch the Film.

In 2013, Film makers Anna and Tom Davies set off on a round-the-world journey, meeting and connecting with different people from different backgrounds and collating their stories. Each person interviewed shared who they are, what they'd experienced, their ideas on love and freedom and lessons they've learnt. 

The documentary is a compilation of these stories and insights. An opportunity to learn, appreciate, connect and care about people living in our global community.
