Humanity - For the Explorer, Traveler, and Adventurer in You
“Authentic” travellers look to expand their worldview by connecting with people and experiencing their culture, customs, and lifestyle. APPY Award entrant Humanity, created for the iPad, gives users an intimate and exhilarating look at destinations, peoples and cultures from around the world.
Humanity is a bi-monthly interactive periodical whose goal is to inspire “authentic” travel. Each issue brings you closer to a destination through cultural immersion and profiles of individuals that contribute to that country’s uniqueness.
This app is the brainchild of Kerrin Sheldon and Gaston Blanchet, two self-taught filmmakers and world travelers who are storytellers, not tourist guides. Each issue takes months to produce and all content is original, from stunning short documentaries to profiles of local people. The app takes full advantage of the iPad experience, featuring rich visual media, immersive soundscapes and interactive environments. Dozens of voices from artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs narrate the stories, giving each country a unique personality.
Whether you are preparing for a trip or are an armchair traveller, Humanity is an innovative form of visual storytelling meant to foster a respect for what makes us unique and what binds us together.
The app is free and available for both Apple and Android platforms.
