Founded by Ravi Thornton in 2011 after the loss of her brother to schizophrenia and suicide, Ziggy’s Wish began as a way to share conversations about those difficult issues in a beautiful, creative, raw and honest way. This conversation grew into The HOAX Project, which ran for six years and went on to be the world’s first proven study of the social-recovery impact of multi-faceted narrative. Since then we have formally incorporated and, alongside The HOAX Project, have developed and delivered many other projects (see our Case Studies).
Ziggy’s Wish is a committed social enterprise. Our mission is to use storytelling innovation for social and environmental benefit. Put simply, we strive to do positive work that helps change the world for the better.
Our work has been recognised for several awards – including TIC Anoia Technology for Social Purpose, National Lottery Good Causes Award, Clinical Research Impact HSJ Award, Medicine Unboxed Creative Prize, Comics in Education Graphic Novel of the Year, British Comic Awards Best Book, Comica Top Ten British Graphic Novels and more – but none of these are more important to us than the feedback we receive from the people we directly impact (see our Testimonials and Reviews).
