The project /wvndər/ is an attempt to share individual experiences of /w ndər/ing and to explore the /w ndər/ing experiences of others.
The aim is to consider humanity globally, investigate realities of human nature and nurture and acknowledge disparities of circumstance and situation - using the arts as a medium and mediator to address these complex situations.
The project was conceived after reflecting on a decade of crosscontinent travel, questioning our own motives, evaluating our experiences and feeling a need to investigate the social responsibility of globalisation and examine the perspective of privilege.
