“Isolation is the feeling of sitting alone at the bottom of a well. Connectedness is the feeling of belonging.” Kim Samuel
- When you hear the word belonging, what images come to mind?
- What memories, feelings and life experiences have informed your personal sense of belonging?
- How are young people today fostering a culture of belonging and inclusion within your community?
A sense of belonging is a human need, like the need for food and shelter and who we are is shaped by the people who we are connected to! Our communities thrive when people feel connected, welcomed, accepted for who they are and supported by those around us.
In the past, geographic boundaries often defined our identities and communities. In a digital age, people are either feeling hyper connected or excluded from opportunities for meaningful connection.
TakingITGlobal invite your imagination, voice and perspective on depicting visual representations on the theme of belonging so that we tackle the issue of isolation together.
