Sometimes a simple, hand-drawn image conveys more meaning than glossy photographs and films. Benjamin Dix and the team at Positive Negatives, Ltd., use multimedia technology to tell new stories to represent global conflict, humanitarian and migration issues to wide and diverse audiences. In this Learning Lab, Benjamin walked us through a range of collaborative projects, which use mixed-methods of investigative journalism, ethnography, interactive comics, and face-to-face testimonials. www.positivenegatives.org

Learning Labs form part of the Out of Place Action-Research Platform (a project led by Counterpoints Arts’ Learning Lab, in partnership with Royal Holloway, University of London and FilmAid).
