If any of you follow my updates on Facebook or Twitter, you may have seen last month that I had posted about the SheSays Awards, and that I was thrilled to find out that I had won the Industry Award for my animation work on the RSA animation, “The Power Of Empathy”.

Beautiful animation. Ugly truth.

We recently made this emotional animated film for the Foreign Office’s campaign to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.
Rape and sexual violence are used as a weapon of war around the world. They destroy whole communities and ruins the lives of women and men, boys and girls. Their effects last long beyond the original crimes, but it is not an inevitable part of war.

In Nigeria we’ve recently seen two hundred girls kidnapped from their school by an Islamic militant group, known for forcing previous victims into sexual slavery.

Next week, the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, co-hosted by Angelina Jolie, aims to put an end to the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war by:
· Improving documentation and investigation of sexual violence in conflict through launching the new International Protocol;
· Providing greater support and assistance to survivors of sexual violence, including children;
· Ensuring women are fully integrated in all peace and security efforts; and
· Improving international co-ordination.

The video has been launched today and we’d love for you to help share it via your website or social media channels to help put an end to sexual violence in conflict.

Jody Williams, Anyone Can Change The World

What if you really could change the world?

The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts (the RSA) is an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges. Through its ideas, research and 27,000-strong Fellowship it seeks to understand and enhance human capability so we can close the gap between today’s reality and people’s hopes for a better world. 
 
As part of that mission, the RSA public events programme has launched RSA Shorts.  This new series provides a snapshot of a big idea, blending voices from the RSA public events programme and the creative talents of illustrators and animators from around the world. It responds to the ever-increasing need for new ideas and inspiration in our busy lives and acts as a shot of ‘mental espresso’ to awaken the curiosity in all of us.
 
The audio of this RSA short is of Jody Williams. Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize winner, firmly believes that each and every one of us can and should contribute to creating a better world. In this short Jody explains why it is so important that strive to make a difference.

Animated and directed by Katy Davis (AKA Gobblynne).
