Featured Project : Adobe Youth Voices

  Home » Featured & Projects  »  Adobe Youth Voices
In June 2006, Adobe launched a new global philanthropic program, Adobe Youth Voices. The program engages 12-18 year-olds with digital tools to develop critical skills necessary to become active and engaged members of their communities. Through documentary filmmaking, animation, digital images, audio and web projects, these youth are encouraged to "create with purpose" and have a voice in changing their communities. For full details on the program, please see the Adobe press release that announced the program and the program's Web site.

AnimAction was invited to collaborate as an animation training partner with Adobe Youth Voices partners iEARN, the world's largest non-profit global network of K-12 educators and youth using technology to design and collaborate on projects that make a difference in the world, and Listen Up!, a leading youth media organization based out of New York, to conduct the workshops.

AnimAction trained 60 youth and teachers in animation at the Adobe Youth Voices, Christel House India Learning Centre based in Bangalore. Christel House India Learning Centre is all about teaching literacy with the majority of their students being part of the "untouchables" caste. They have a good success rate with graduates finding technology-related employment in Bangalore. There were three other local government Bangalore schools attending the AnimAction animation workshop.

The collaborative efforts of all the partners developed into a resounding success as you can read from the comments from teachers and youth. Youth worked in teams developing and producing six 30-second animated shorts that carried their self-selected theme expressing themselves and how they view their community. Coincidentally, AnimAction is developing programs for youth in India, presently in Kolkata and Bangalore.

"We all enjoyed the animation workshop. I learnt that in making an animation film there are three steps that is Pre Production, Production and Post Production. We all want to work again and make bigger and longer movies. I would love to learn more about animation. I would like to thank all the people who took so much of trouble in arranging the workshop and teaching us these wonderful things."

 Ms. Blessina Cyril,Mr. Dhanraj, I.T. Teacher, Christel House India Learning Centre,Art Teacher, Chr...
It was fun + work workshop! When we went to the workshop we went with lots of expectations, at the end of the workshop we were very happy because our expectations were met. The wonderful thing about the workshop was that we made a film which was entirely done by us and the children. We were able to do it by the guidance and support given by the animation team. They were very supportive and helpful. One of the things which I like about the workshop is that, it was not a lecture class or just theory; it was fully practical where we had hands on experience. I am glad that I was a part of the animation workshop. On behalf of all the children and myself, I would like to thank Adobe for conducting the workshop and teaching us. It was great working with Adobe.
