Half-term Cartoon heaven!

Check out this new project which finally swung into action over half-term. Biomation is a pioneering science and youth arts project in York, UK. It involves artists and clinicians working with children and young people at York Hospital NHS trust to explore relevant health issues. We're using animation, digital media, sound and creative writing to produce short films, animation, stories and music. The project is unique within the UK. I spent the half term in the children's ward of York Hospital making flipbooks. Brilliant stuff! Can't wait to see this project take off.
