I am a student from the Netherlands and I have been traveling a lot in the past year.
I got to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds and we shared eachother's stories and feelings.
We agreed about one thing: we are all different people, but we are also very much the same.
I am not very happy with this world but I don't know what to do directly about it.
After sharing many feelings and understandings with different people I found out about one thing:
we need to workd together to make good structures and good systems for our world.
But to do this there is only one important thing: we have to understand eachother, we have to look further then our pre judges and or the (national) systems we are used to.
Here is what goes wrong in this world. We only think in the systems we are used to and we don't have all the time, money, power or braveness to change something directly.
I want to change this. I want to make people critical thinkers. It is very important that everyone in our world are becoming more critical to make our planet better. To do this I have a plan:
I want to capture the world. I want to travel to countries that have/had troubles but became better or still have a lot of potentional. I want to talk to the people who live there. My plan is to make documenteries. Documenteries about how the people live today and how they feel. What they think we can change to make everything a better place and what do they need.
By making art (photographs/documentaries/anything) we can get understanding of people into other people (in a fast way). By identifying and visualizing it, people recognize and understand eachother easily. I think this is something good if we want to work more together in the future.
We are understanding eachother more and more but for me it feels still to slowly.
This is exactly why I want to travel and capture the world. I know people that I can work together with. People who have creativity and a lot of energy. They are also students that want to make the world a better place. I have channels but I do not have tools.
My problem is that I come from a totally different study related background. After traveling and seeing a lot of stuff in our world, I feel the need to do something different.
I need a very good laptop for this, good edit programs and maybe also a better camera then what I have now. I think I have enough to travel a little bit but I need more (life) security if I really want to make this creativity into practise.
