Special Collections at Leeds University has recently been awarded funding from the Wellcome Institute to catalogue the Leeds Animation Workshop (LAW) Archive.
LAW is a women’s collective set up in 1978 to produce and distribute animated films on social issues. The LAW archive is thought to be the most complete record of a collective animation organisation in existence. It offers a national and international resource for exploring connections between animation, activism, feminism, art, documentary, social history, political movements, co-operative practices, medical humanities research, trade union education, independent film-making, and the history of animation techniques.
The closing date is 9th May. More information
