What GIFs

Celebrate your alter-ego and nurture your creativity in our claymation workshop, where participants will create their own accessible and animated GIFs.

In this pop-up animation studio, participants will create a short 20-frame animation video. Using claymation Graphic Interchange Format (GIF), they will explore their identity through a cartoon-like alter ego. Gathered together, these GIFs will produce a mosaic of pastiche portraits. Presented by leading arts and health organisation DADAA, What GIFs? explores the potential of clay and natural materials to spark imagination.
