Animating History

Animating History is an innovative workshop program for youth that connects media literacy and storytelling with building a sense of community through the creative exploration of local history. Students work with a professional animator, learn “hands on” all parts of the animation process, and create a one-minute historical animated film. It is offered at the Museum of Vancouver and the Port Moody Station Museum.
