An animation about Gender, Identity and Love.
Gender Roots was created as part of the Justice, Art and Medicine initiative ‘JAM’ at St. George’s University and is inspired by the concept of the Genderbread Person. Roots in general are amorphic and asexual in their nature offering a blank canvas for teasing out and exploring the often overlapping concepts of Anatomical Sex, Gender Identity, Gender Expression and Attraction. Gender Roots aims to increase awareness and understanding of human diversity within the Caribbean region and across the globe.

A Public Health Awareness Campaign for the Caribbean Region
This animation is a sample of a larger Public Health Awareness Campaign tailored to the Caribbean Region. The campaign demystifies the causes and effects of the Human Papilloma Virus while encouraging women of all ages to receive regular gynaecological exams to prevent the development of cervical cancer. Cervical cancer ranks among the highest rates globally and is disproportionately affecting women in low-income communities. Grenada itself carries a high cervical disease burden and associated mortality rate. In collaboration with health experts of Caribbean origin, we co-wrote a script which includes regional language cues and lay-audience vocabulary. We illustrated assets to reflect local characteristics and staged animations with subtle humour to resonate with the Grenadian audience using personally recognisable situations. The campaign focuses on best practices for prevention and aims to fill the need for more culturally appropriate health education materials in the Caribbean region.
In collaboration with Women in Medicine.
