Animating experiences

Newham Library


Taking the theme Coming of Age as their inspiration, Newham Libraries will run a series of workshops for refugee and migrant families as part of our BBC Novels that Shaped our World partnership with libraries. Their aim is to improve accessibility and awareness of their library offer and provide families with a platform to share their experiences.

Following consultation with campaigning author Onjali Q. Rauf, they will work with Salmagundi Films and Red Door Studios who will deliver a series of workshops in Newham Libraries. These workshops will give participants the opportunity to reflect on and share their own stories through animation and visual art.

The animations and art work created in these workshops will be shared with friends and families of participants and the wider community in a celebratory art event and screening.
