The Global Village is an important part of the AIDS Conference program. It’s free and open to the general public. There are over 200 activities available throughout the week. There are sessions, exhibition booths and marketplaces, networking zones, performances, film screenings and art exhibits. The Global Village is a diverse and vibrant space where communities gather from all over the world to meet, share and learn from each other.
Atlas2018 invited all visitors of the Global Village to make a statement on camera. We asked all these wonderful men and women to tell us who they are, where they came from, and why they are attending this conference. And we asked them to share with us their dreams for 2018. When we meet them again at the next conference in 2018, in Amsterdam, we want to hear from them if their dreams came true.
The short movies are filmed and directed by Hans van Dijk at The Global Village in Durban
