Animation for Development: A Bristol-Peru Collaboration

Project Details

Description

"Animation for Development" is a collaborative research network that brings together academic researchers and professional animators in Bristol and Peru. Our key objective is to explore how participatory animation and film-making can be used as tools to investigate key challenges affecting the lives of indigenous and rural people in Latin America -such as growing marginalisation, economic hardship and displacement. Bristol is known internationally for its thriving film and animation industry, and Peru is currently investing in a growing animation sector – our collaborative network wants to explore how marginalised and displaced people can be actively engaged in the production of digital technologies and materials (specifically co-production of animation) and use them for self-representation and to seek wider recognition.
