'Emerging from the Cocoon', 5th November 2016, Berry Theatre, Hedge End, Southampton
Cocooning is a word that can be used to describe how communities connect – in that they don’t.
On one level it’s not making eye contact on the tube, on another it’s a deep lack of community.
We don’t seek happiness and fulfilment through contact with others anymore, we seek it through
acquiring material goods. We have our own personal cocoons and on a larger scale an entire nation can seek to separate itself from other nations.
The challenge we face is how to debunk this ‘separatist’ attitude in the face of challenges that are truly global and know no boundaries.
Welcome to Global Documentary. We make films and run events and webcasts that focus on positive change, for people and societies, both locally and globally. We also help other organisations do the same.
Seeing is believing and, if people can see and understand, they can get involved.
