Oxfam explore communicating poverty through film. This is a great initiative shared by my mate Ted featuring a short film: Bang for Your Buck.

In Burundi, Africa, a grenade costs the same price as a pint of beer.

Check out this clip and share it to rate the video. It is a story worth telling.

How can we use creative expression as a way of communicating complex themes, particularly to an audience whose attention is difficult to reach? The audience I am addressing through the 10 City Bridge Run is the leaders of the G20 member states. This is about collective action and collaboration- it is not something I can do on my own, and it represents the voice of many individuals coming together.

How might we best capture ‘human bridges’ on photograph for use as a pictorial petition?
