Youth in vulnerable communities in the Corporate Area are to benefit from an animation course being spearheaded by the Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) through its Junior Centre programme.
The training, which will take place at the IOJ’s East Street headquarters downtown Kingston, is geared towards youth aged eight to 18.
It will equip them with basic animation skills, enabling them to use the technique to showcase their creative talents in the arts.
the course is expected to begin this year. Facilitators from the HEART Trust/NTA will conduct the training.
“Right now, we are in dialogue with HEART/NTA. They are to come and look at the space to make sure that it meets their standards. We’re looking at the curriculum right now, and we’re working on the details to get that programme up and running in the near future,” she said.
