The Foundation Global Values Alliance, a partner on the TRUST project, has sponsored a dance, music and rap competition in South Africa. The TRUST jury was looking for artistic representation of the San Code of Research Ethics and in particular the values of fairness, respect, care and honesty. But what we got was so much more: powerful messages in highly creative videos filmed in amazing scenery. The winner, released today, won unanimously. The video of !Khwa ttu Kids, We are the San, deserves first prize, said the Jury, because its story is most beautifully told, the dancers and singers are unusually talented and the serious topic is explained with a joyful spirit. The winners “were ecstatic with delight” when they heard last week.

Enjoy! And watch out for the release of the runners-up video.
