Creative Storytelling Project: Storytelling Is the Most Powerful Way to Put Ideas Into the World

Grantees of the Creative Storytelling Project set out to explore new ways of talking about corruption and bring to life some of the stories told by South African journalists. They did this through theatre, a makeshift gameshow and a powerful social media campaign. Our goal as OpenUp was to inform people wherever information was not previously accessible; empower communities by providing them with the tools needed to effect change; and encourage citizens to trust that their voices will be heard by government.
