Our Project

Shared cultural and historical understanding is missing from the world. Its absence leads to misunderstanding, prejudice, and even war.

We want to reinvent the way we learn about culture and history. We want to take the single view of a textbook and turn it into views from people all over the world. And make the whole experience personal and memorable.

Perspective is a web platform for sharing and exploring first-hand accounts from history and our lives. We envision interactive public displays that will show this content in common spaces, such as on the wall of a subway station. How cool would that be?
