Humankind Enterprises

It was an enormous pleasure to welcome back Humankind Enterprises to work with our Year 9 students on Monday.  Driven by the belief that 'We all have an innate need to belong', Humankind Enterprises aim to build connections between individuals in order to create communities.  Research has identified that 'lonely people are more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and antisocial behaviour' but when people feel connected and experience a sense of belonging, they have the capacity to be more resilient in difficult times. 

Storytelling is an essential component of the work conducted by Humankind Enterprises.  Through the ancient art of storytelling, connection between individuals is established.  And through storytelling, collective narratives emerge which connect people to a shared sense of purpose.  

All Year 9 students now have the opportunity to participate in the Story Collectors program facilitated by Humankind Enterprises.  Students will learn the skills and expertise involved in working alongside individuals to 'capture' a story using smartphone technology and digital editing skills.  The program will run on Tuesday afternoons after school, commencing 30 July.  Students will be working with our Siena alumnae to capture the diversity and richness of the Siena story.  The students’ films will then be showcased at a community screening event to be held towards the end of the term.
