What if we could all take a moment to see life through someone else's lens?
Inspired by the students of 100cameras, World Perspective Day was created to celebrate what it means to be human, together. It is a day recognized worldwide that encourages the beautiful and diverse perspectives shared amongst people across the globe — giving each of us the opportunity to see life through another perspective.
Held annually on March 30th and through using the hashtag #WorldPerspectiveDay, we seek to unify a moment in time that includes global citizens everywhere and embraces the belief that there is enough space on earth for how different and how similar we all are to help foster connection and understanding. The images gathered through the hashtag become a stunning, collective narrative that portray the diversity, complexity, and journey of the human race.
The World Perspective Day platform seeks to capture a rounded worldview that embodies how each perspective can experience hope, hardship, disappointment, joy, hurt, excitement, frustration, or anger through a multitude of differing looks, scenes, portraits, expressions, and colors among other compositional techniques. This day seeks to empower the beauty and strength that lives therein the hearts found behind each lens. At the core, participants will experience the importance of sharing their unique perspectives while also engaging with life through the lens of others worldwide.
Join The Narrative
Whether it be through joining or hosting a World Perspective Day Meet-up in your city or through participating in the hashtag on March 30th, you can get directly involved!
Let's together create a space for the world to lean into the unlimited good we can generate together when we open ourselves up to listening, seeing, understanding, and respecting one another's perspectives.
Inaugural World Perspective Day 2017
World Perspective Day would be just an idea if it were not for our incredible founding partners that collectively believed more space could be created for all perspectives to be seen, heard, and celebrated. From first backing the concept to launching the initiative in Times Square NYC in March of 2017, our partners made it possible.
