Animation is an extraordinary and powerful medium of art, cultural expression, and communication. Animation includes an impressive range of approaches, techniques, and goals. It is created by drawing, painting, and animating puppets and objects, using clay, sand, paper, and a computer, working with multiple narratives and non-narratives, reflecting a diversity of themes and performances presented on various platforms. Animation can communicate across cultures without verbal language as a visual storytelling medium. It truly is a means of cultural connection.
