Small Step or Giant Leap?

In an exclusive interview with Creative Update, Oscar nominated animator Michael Dudock de Wit tells us: “Creative individuals who are passionate about what they do, will always be guided by that passion.” Pulling together this issue has shown us just how right he is. Regardless of the mediums they use, or the issues they chose to explore, it’s passion that unites all of our interviewees. We hope you enjoy learning more about Becky Dann, a photographer determined to challenge perceptions of disabled people. Then there’s Asha Ahmed Mwilu, a documentary maker who has risked life and limb to expose terrorism in the dangerous Mandera County. And who could fail to be inspired by Yvonne Ntiamoah, a Fashion graduate working tirelessly to create new opportunities for designers in her native Ghana. With creativity in schools under threat, never has it been more important for those working in the creative sector to share their experiences and inspire the next generation. If you have a story to share, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
