A platform for the culturally ambiguous
“A third culture kid is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside their parents’ culture. The third culture kid builds relationships to all the cultures, while not having full ownership in any.”
This is a quote by Ruth Van Reken, who did extensive research on the ‘third culture’ phenomenon. She is a third culture individual herself; She is a citizen of the USA, but was raised in Nigeria. In this interconnected world, for more and more people ‘nationality’ is but a word. This is an age where cultural boundaries are dissolving, where identity is no longer defined by nationality.
THIRD CULTURE is an organization that serves as a platform for third culture individuals, supporting efforts in film, theatre, fashion, and writing. Here on the THIRD CULTURE online magazine, we share stories of diversity, identity, and belonging, and bring you the latest discussions on cross-cultural issues.
