Moving Pictures Animation Project

I think there is something very special and magical about stop motion animation. To breath life into a character and inanimate objects through the simple and gentle touch of your hand is an incredibly rewarding experience.

I am pleased to present a new project for Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind called ‘Moving Pictures’ – promoting positive mental health through animation. We will be using the magic of stop motion animation to explore the Mental Health Foundation’s ‘ten ways on how to look after your mental health’. The workshops are for people who have experienced mild to moderate mental health problems. This creative hands-on approach can be beneficial to peoples emotional wellbeing – simple, fun, requires no expertise and is an interesting visual way to express ideas.

The project has been funded by the Big Lottery Fund after a successful funding application was submitted by Paola Colombo.

It will be delivering 10 free workshops over the next year which includes a lovely free lunch and travel expenses are paid for participants. At the moment we have workshops booked for Omnia/Outreach, the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Trust Recovery College as well as a taster session at NCN Mind for organisations.

Please get in touch if you are interested and would like to find out more about the project or have any suggestions/ideas. There is more information on the new website/blog which is where the animations created from the workshops will be screened.
