Our mission is to bring academic research to a larger mainstream audience, so it can have a bigger impact.
Who we work with
We collaborate with leading global organisations, spanning the worlds of academia, NGOs, arts and media.
The impact we have
While every project is unique, as it’s shaped by the research, here are some key examples:
Our origin story
Stories are a universal language, connecting with audiences across countries, cultures and communities. Our Founding Director, Dr Benjamin Worku-Dix, discovered their power during his Anthropology PhD.
He explored the use of sequential art to represent complex testimonies from Sri Lankan Tamil communities. The resulting art, and its galvanising effect on audiences, inspired the growth of PositiveNegatives into the global visual research organisation it is today.
