An Evening with The Animation Project!

May 30, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Children’s Media Association has partnered with Women in Animation to bring you an evening with The Animation Project.  We welcome Brian Austin, the Founder and Executive Director of THE ANIMATION PROJECT (TAP) and some of their wonderful interns.  This is a city-funded project targeting at-risk youth in New York City schools, teaching them animation skills so they can have a future. Many excel in this program when they’re not able  to anywhere else in school. TAP’s tagline says it all.. ….TRANSFORMATION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY! The Animation Project (TAP) nurtures the social, emotional and cognitive growth of at-risk youth, using digital art technology as a therapeutic medium and a workforce development tool.
We’ll hear how Brian started TAP and you’ll hear the stories of the kids whose lives have changed because of it. We’ll get to see some of their work too. 
The city has started the first Animation Council to help TAP’s graduates find work. It’s an amazing program. You can learn more by clicking here.
