This program empowers youth to develop, plan, shoot, edit, and screen short films that speak about their lives and their community. Using local history stories, students create short animated films using relevant objects, paper cutouts, clay and themselves. BC Stories is an interactive, immersive program that promotes artistic expression through the medium of animated film.
The objective of BC Stories is to encourage play and imagination, and provide an accessible forum in which students can tell stories about their community. In the process, participants develop important skills, including critical thinking and storytelling, which will support their development as life-long learners.
