Since October 2018 we have been running an animation and film-making club at Oasis Academy, Oldham as part of their extra-curricular provision. The last few months have seen the young people work with Peshkar artists Lewis and Johnny to create short pieces of animation, playing with plasticine modelling, paper animation and using found objects to tell their stories.

In the second part of the Spring term they will be working with Alternarration artist Rabhia to develop those skills and gain themselves some Arts Awards

Check out the short video here!


Originally formed in 1991 as a community theatre project for Oldham’s Asian community, Peshkar has evolved into the UK’s leading participatory arts organisation targeting young people who are deemed hard to reach or socially disadvantaged.
