An organization and platform for documenting other urban narratives, alternative urban culture curation, and uplifting global perspectives.
World Unwrapped was launched on June 13, 2014 initially as a multimedia site for the exchange of global art, culture, and stories as well as with a component on inclusive urbanism. As it has evolved over the past few years, and will continue to do so, World Unwrapped aims to centralize stories and perspectives which are otherwise peripheralized and in addition support projects and community alternatives that aim to make our world more equitable.
While critical, we hope that World Unwrapped is a call to action and place of inspiration.
Teju Adisa-Farrar, as the Founder & Creative Director of World Unwrapped, seeks to create a vibrant space for creative, critical and social-change centered individuals. World Unwrapped is for those who are interested in highlighting the culture, impact, and diverse spaces that exist in cities around the world while also trying to make our world more beautiful and more equitable. Through World Unwrapped Teju hopes to create more cultural urban inclusivity and optimistic-critique in global media. She mostly writes short essays on a range of subjects based on World Unwrapped’s projects and the grants received. She has breached topics such as: positive ecological communities in Israel/Palestine to Blackness in Europe and the power of cultural activism to inspiration from artists and creatives around the world.
