    Abstract

    This short animation gives a summary of part of my PhD research. In my research I explored the creativity of informal workers during socio-economic crisis in Zimbabwe. The animation tells a story about where my inspiration came from, how I carried out the research. In particular it highlights the work of Dexter an artist who builds sculptures out of used materials. I currently run workshops to share stories such as Dexters. My aim is to generate an empathic awareness of the challenges faced by those in crisis, while highlighting how creativity and sustainability can start in the humblest of places.
