AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO OUR RESEARCH
Our goal is to remind us of our shared humanity, and we are currently seeking meaningful data on the effectiveness of our films.
Woven Threads and Black Dog Institute are conducting research using the films in series one and two of the Woven Threads catalogue. Series one shared moments of hope in a refugee's journey, whilst the focus of Series two is on people living with mental health challenges. This research is designed to understand the responses to viewing for people who watch these animations. This research has been reviewed and approved by The University of New South Wales Human Research Ethics Committee (HC210526).
If you wish to participate in our research, click the “Participate in our Research” button to view two of our short-films and participate in a short survey. Taking part is entirely voluntary and we would very much value your insight and contribution.
