animanoiroha is an organization based in Otsuki, a town at the southwest tip of Shikoku Island in Japan. In collaboration with the Animated Learning Lab and The Drawing Academy of The Animation Workshop/VIA University College, recognized as one of the top animation schools in the world, our mission is to turn childrens voices, perspectives, feelings and ideas into animation in order to animate adults, local communities and society. We use expression and art to create new connections and nurture life values by bringing local resources, children, teachers, and artists together.
