Regarding Humanity | A Space for Dialogue

Regarding Humanity fosters comment and debate on image, film, and program design in social impact.

Below are our three frameworks to create dialogue about cultural history, visual media, ethnography, and storytelling. We believe that by learning to See, Listen, and Frame the issue of ethical representation, we can shift toward greater accountability and effective action.

We will update the site with content and commentary periodically, so please visit often. If you want to write for us, watch this space. We will take submissions and seek commissions in the future.   

We invite you to comment and debate on the examples in each section.
