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.
