This video was created entirely with images, words, and music recorded by Dragons students and instructors in collaboration with local communities (representing 15 countries) who shared their homes, temples, villages, families, music and presence with us. Over 100 contributors from around the world, and growing, weaving together the poetry and magic of this experimental collaboration, Where There Be Dragons' Global Video Project.
Where There Be Dragons is a educational community, creating authentic, rugged and profound cross-cultural experiences that expose the beautiful and complex realities of the developing world.
More videos to come soon. If you've been on a Dragons program, stay tuned for an open invitation to send in your videos to contribute and participate in this ongoing project.
