Storytellers: The power of creativity

Project Twist-It is a multi-platform storytelling initiative founded by someone who grew up in poverty. With the help of artists and writers inspired by the issue, it is a hub for telling stories that haven't been told and hearing voices not usually heard.

Our aim is to reflect the real, lived experience of people in poverty. We want to use the power of storytelling to change our collective understanding of what it means to experience it. We think that people with lived experience should do the talking, rather than being talked about.

We are thrilled that so many artists, writers and musicians have chosen to work with us on Project Twist-It. Here are their contributions.
