Animation: Linnéa Haviland and children at Kingston Library, London UK
Poem: Francesca Beard and children at Kingston Library
The SPINE residency was funded by Kingston Library, Arts Council England and Apples and Snakes who are the producers of SPINE.
A short film about the people and things which make Kingston and the library special.
As part of the SPINE artist residency I worked together with poet Francesca Beard at Kingston Library to encourage primary school kids to engage with the library.
We worked with six classes from local schools as well as children and adults who came to the open sessions, who's drawings and poems we collaged into a massive map of Kingston. The over 100 primary school kids who collaborated with us on this project also made the frame-by-frame and stop-motion animation. We love Kingston Library!
