4thWorld is a project that produces films in collaboration with people find themselves without a secure place to live. The aim is to support people to share their stories in order to affect change in their lives.
There are constant spotlights focused on these communities and it’s rarely the case they are able represent themselves and their experiences. It is generally agreed amongst change makers that in order to lead change, they need to understand often-complex problems from the perspective of those affected by them; their decisions need to be informed by the people who require the change if the change is to be sustainable.
