Strengthening democracy, freedom of expression and human rights is no easy task. It can be difficult to work with these issues in countries where the need is greatest.
One way of overcoming this problem can be to use new methods to address sensitive or difficult subjects and bring about change. What makes Creative Force unique is that we give funding to projects which work specifically with media (new or traditional) or the arts to do just this.
Documentary film, photography, dance and theatre are just some examples of cultural disciplines which can be used to explore important questions in new ways. Social media and traditional journalism can also be used innovatively to strengthen basic rights and freedoms.
