WE THE PEOPLE
Community, collaboration and hope for the next generation.
This is the moment, If ever there was a time to come together, united as one people, it’s now.
We have been separated for too long, we need to build the bridges to form new communities that are not compartmentalised but unified.
We need to break down the boundaries that keep us separated within society and connect us through our differences.
Exploring human connection in all its unique forms - past, present and future, Shangri-La 2022 is an adventure into possibility. From sitting around a fire-pit sharing past experiences to delving into emerging new technologies to connect globally, there are so many ways we can come together.
This sprawling interactive installation aims to celebrate humanity - what makes us human, and how we can collectively make change.
Shangri-La is an enormous collaboration with cutting edge visual artists from around the world, creating site specific works that amplify our themes and contribute to the ongoing narrative in unique and diverse ways.
