UNDRGLOBE goes to meet cultural entrepreneurs in large metropoles around the world : Paris, Berlin, Cape Town, Melbourne, Seoul, Tokyo.
These people managed to turn their creativity and innovative concepts into successful companies and projects. Their influences spread all over across culture in general and diverse creative industries. Fashion, art, music, cinema, event planning, gastronomy are spheres that are over flowing with passionate people, often little known, who chose to get off the beaten track in order to try to lead a life that is out of the ordinary.
As those cultural entrepreneurs are as inspiring as those from the Silicon Valley, we decided to create, through UNDRGLOBE, a video platform to give them a chance to speak. A lot more than just one particular area, UNDRGLOBE aims to focus on the creative approach itself. We are interested in every single person who succeeded in making a living from its passion.
Showing how creativity - going from art, economy or different ways of life- obstructs the dynamics of standardization and homogenization of large metropoles around the world, this is the UNDRGLOBE project.
UNDRGLOBE’s goal is to promote creativity and inspire the young generation with examples of local cultural entrepreneurs’ success stories. Turning one’s passion into a professional activity that contributes to the influence of his/her town is an attainable goal. Our interviews want to show how others succeeded in doing so.
QUALITY Interviews, video reports, articles, photographies, we’re committing to produce quality contents throughout our journey. Indeed, it’s the quality of our publications that will determine their impact. Finally, in this same goal which is to touch and inspire as many young people as possible, all our of our productions will be entirely translated and subtitled.
Beyond the four months of travel, UNDRGLOBE is a project that we really want to put on a long-term footing. Thus, as soon as we’re back from Japan (which will be our last destination), our objective will be to turn the spotlight on European cultural entrepreneurs.
