And yet Athens is still animated.
Workshop series with Babis Alexiadis.
April – June 2015
Double Decker worked alongside internationally fêted animator and media artist Babis Alexiadis to devise a series of workshops for children as part of the education programme accompanying the Strange Cities: Athens exhibition. Young people were supported in exploring their own perceptions and story-telling abilities in working with others to make an animated film about Athens. Along the way each child gained not just knowledge of animation techniques and a better understanding of their own city, but also improved confidence, social and teamwork skills, and a sense of achievement.
