Internships: Web, Video, Education, Translation, Dev't - Global Lives (SOMA / south beach)

About the Global Lives Project:

Founded in 2004 and incorporated in 2007, the Global Lives Project is an arts, education, and new media non-profit that is building a video library of human life experience to reshape how we as both producers and viewers conceive of cultures, nations and people outside of our own communities. We envision a world where all human lives have equal value and where people on the opposite sides of the planet see and treat each other as neighbors.

Using 24-hour continuous video shoots--a virtual day in the life--of people from around the world, we educate, inspire and empower our audiences to "step out of their worlds" and reevaluate their roles as global citizens. We work with several hundred filmmakers, translators, designers, artists, and other volunteers in a uniquely global, volunteer-driven collaboration. Our first major exhibition at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2010 showcased the first 10 "day in a life" shoots and drew 20,000 visitors. In addition, we have hosted multi-screen video exhibits, film screenings and educational programs all over the world.

Our future plans include developing educational curriculum that incorporate Global Lives materials into classrooms worldwide, hosting additional exhibits and screenings in new locations, launching a dynamic web video platform and developing a feature-length documentary based on our content.
