My son murdered ~ tragedy and the transformation…

Creative Visions was inspired by the death of Dan Eldon, Kathy’s son, a Reuters photojournalist who was stoned to death by an angry mob whilst working in Somalia in 1993.

Creative Visions has incubated more than 200 projects, including award-winning films and documentaries that have impacted 100 million people on six continents.

Kathy has published her autobiography & memoir ‘In The Heart Of Life’ a unique & frank story of African adventure, passionate self discovery, tragedy & transformation.

A feature film about Dan’s life entitled ‘The Journey is The Destination’ was filmed in Africa and released in September 2016. Inspired by the story of Dan as a charismatic young activist, artist, photographer and adventurer who woke up everyday with the drive to make the world a little better before he went to sleep. Dan was a bright light, extinguished at a young age and this film, is an exuberant, yet moving tribute to him, inspiring us to live more fully, love more – and realise that in giving, we receive, and of course that the journey is truly the destination!
