Belonging to different belief systems is one of the many ways that communities are bound together.

In the World Gallery, ideologies--views about how a society should be governed and who should hold the power--can be encountered across a wide range of examples from all over the world.

In Oceania, for instance, the Kiribati eco-warrior helmet made by Chris Charteris was designed to represent the political struggle to protect the environment.

A short film in the Oceania area also shows protests about climate change, politics and fishing in the Pacific Ocean.

Important decisions taken by governments have far reaching influence and can affect, and even threaten to destroy, individuals’ livelihoods. This is clearly showcased in the World Gallery through conflicts experienced by the wiki:world_gallery:layered_info:to_do:text:mbendjele|Mbendjele people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo over access to land and resources as well as the diminishing land rights among the Hadza people of northern Tanzania.
