Midlands Animation Project for Children with Diabetes

Connect creatively with other children and make your very own animation!

This October, Helium Arts is hosting an animation project for children with diabetes aged 9-12 who are living in the Midlands. Join us for a taster workshop on 5 October to try out animation techniques and meet other children. Then bring your new skills to our mid-term camp on the weekend of 2-3 November where you will get to make your own animation. The project is led by visual artist Ciara Harrison and animator Pádraig Fagan of Paper Panther Productions.
