The Human Journey
A story of migration
The Human Journey is primarily a story of migration — be it by choice or force or driven by fear.
This movement of people has historically brought cultures from around the globe together, shrinking our planet and bringing the cultural identities that shape us into sharper focus. Inspired by powerful storytelling, The Human Journey seeks to promote deeper understanding of the migration of people and the resilience of humankind to overcome conflict, adversity, prejudice, and injustices, often emboldened by a spirit of exploration and hope.
Beginning in October 2018 through July 2019, The Kennedy Center, National Geographic Society, and the National Gallery of Art will present a range of multidisciplinary performances, exhibits, and immersive discussions that tell this larger story through a personal lens.
