Cartoni Animati in Corsia

Cartoni animati in corsia! is a project by Avisco Association in collaboration with Children’s Hospital of Brescia and it consists in offering to hospitalized children and youngsters, the opportunity to attend animation workshops in order to create their own cartoon using stop motion technique.
The Bill of rights of little girls and boys in hospital establishes that every sick child or adolescent has the right to receive an education. Furthermore, it is important and desirable to offer them the opportunity to attend non-formal education courses to bring them closer to art and culture, also using new technologies.
The audiovisual workshop is structured in order to create a exciting work area that can bring out the potentiality of young people through experiences designed to increase self-esteem, operating and expressive success and personal gratification.

Pediatric departments involved in the project

  • Surgery
  • Neuropsychiatry
  • Oncology
  • Orthopedics and Traumatology
  • Otolaryngology
  • Pediatry

Specific goals

  • Encourage through the workshop experience, a serene and active attitude that contributes to a faster healing, or at least, can support the course of the disease.
  • Facilitate the process of symbolization linked to the children’ story and their inner world through the use of technological tools integrated into a path of artistic practice.
  • Fill the gap of proposals with high technological content, offering patients the opportunity to use the audiovisual language and the new technologies to stimulate a conscious and creative relationship with the television and the massmedia information.
  • Increase and diversify the activities offered both during summer school break and during the school year in hospital, conceived also as a resource for teachers and educators.
  • Provide opportunities for socialization that allow patients to meet, play and confront each other.
  • Diffuse and value the results of the workshop not only within the hospital, but also in the local community, in town and at a national and international level.
