The project “Let’S!” is teaching youth to create a clay animation movie that teenagers will realize completely by themselves. All needed tools will be given to the group to let them tell a story from their environment; their life. The project will be realized in specific neighborhoods of 4 metropolitan cities (Istanbul, Alexandria, Berlin, Barcelona) of different countries where each location has its own unique problems. The Process will contain story building, how to create clay figures, learning about making a clay animation, taking photographs, and moving the figures as well as putting voice over.
“Let’S!” is based on collective production, on living solidarity and self-awareness through the process itself. The end product will be a presentation of all elements combined created by all those youth and artists who had participated in the project. It will investigate ways to widening up the youth’s perception as to their own lives and
their surroundings.
