How can we enable a space for children to express themselves, create connections and collaborate in these challenging times?
Innova together with collaborating partners wanted to offer children a project that promoted creativity in an online format during the health crisis of COVID 19. To provide them with a channel that allowed self expression, connection and collaboration in such challenging times.
We designed and implemented the first online comics and animation competition, reserved for children ages 8 to 15, with the objective of unleashing their creativity, emotions, initiative spirit and narrative skills to use technology in creative ways. We created an online platform with resources and tutorials to support children during their creative process, with our own methodology to create narratives. We recruited participants from four countries and 25 different schools through our network and gave them support throughout the process. We brought together a jury of experts from the world of creation and celebrated the results in a big online event where the winners of each category and age group were awarded.
