Storytelling & Stopmotion Animation for Muslimahs
“Outburst! is hosting ‘Storytelling & Stopmotion Animation for Muslimahs’ which is a three workshop series that runs in August 2016. In the first two workshops we will use oral traditions, storytelling and writing exercises to explore our personal experiences as Muslimahs with the intent of creating short pieces that will be turned into stopmotion animations. The storytelling workshops will be facilitated by Sakinah Hasib and the stopmotion animation workshop will be facilitated by Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
The workshops are open to anyone (16-29) who self-identifies as a Muslim woman through the spectrum of familial, spiritual, political, cultural, and ancestral connections.”
