THE PROJECT BRIEF:
Animation, as a participatory design process, presents itself
as a potent medium to communicate the concepts of social relevance
and importance, by not only being a medium to provide opportunities
of participation at various stages of development but also being a
medium of universal appeal beyond the boundaries of age, languages

are our own.

in the outside world. The children need situations to explore their

to investigate, express and communicate their feelings, thoughts and
Yes, this thought is guiding this project in which a group of kids
(10-12 years of age) will work in a team and will make a short animation
film of their own. Each and every stage (from story to the final film),
the creation and direction come from the kids. By expressing their
feelings and thoughts through the medium which demands a lot of passion,
patience, participation and team work, they will be offered great
learning in terms of interaction, appreciation, tolerance, empathy
and understanding. This process instills values of team work and mutual
faith which are the most essential skills in today's world where all
the best creations come from the multinational and multicultural teams
working across the globe.
The kids will learn, explore, reflect, express, interact and above
