There is a word in the language of South Africa, Ubuntu, that is recognized as a world view of intense humanness, shared concern for each other and togetherness. “I am because you are” captures the recognition that we are interconnected, conscious of one another and sustained in each other.

Nursing students in the School of Health Science, Humber College have been exploring concepts of cultural awakening and civic engagement, not in a classroom environment, but by travelling to Tanzania and Jamaica and working with local communities.

Their journey has been captured through the lens of a camera as they stumbled upon and discovered Ubuntu. The exhibited body of work captures the images of these nursing students as they experience togetherness, honor compassion, allow tolerance and propagate harmony.

Some photographs have the elements of spontaneity and in some cases strive to become the invisible eyewitness account of a suspended moment of interaction between the nursing students and the community.

The exhibit features visual, written as well as aesthetic aspects of story telling to illuminate and reaffirm the nature of the global nursing community.
