A unique journey of global scale
Pioneer of the view that to know one another is essential to human evolution, Helene Tremblay, initiated the ambitious journey of presenting Humanity to Humanity, an adventure unfolding over 3 decades. In each of the 116 countries travelled she has lived with a family representative of the living conditions of the majority. From sunrise to sunset, hour by hour, she has shared the small events that shape daily lives globally.
This innovative research has provided Helene with an intimate knowledge of the people and societies of humanity and those cultural values and environmental factors that inform their being and striving. In this unique work, Helene invites us to challenge existing notions of family and community and in so doing reconstruct a global outlook that holds each citizen of planet earth central to a shared experience. This project has received support from CIDA, UNICEF, UNFPA, UNESCO as well as companies such as Olympus and Body Shop International.
Author of 15 books depicting an intimate portrait of daily life worldwide, Helen’s books are published and distributed in Canada, USA, Australia and France.
Photographer of a series of thematic works narrating life’s ritualized moments as lived across cultures, Helene’s photographs have been exhibited in France , Germany, twice at the United Nations in New York and at the Cultural Foundation of Abu Dhabi.
Speaker Helene Tremblay has engaged over 100,000 participants in conferences spanning Europe, Africa the Middle East and North America through her inspired ability to bring audiences into the homes, lives and heart of humanity.
