Publication regarding the multi-year animation cinema project for children who are patients at the Spedali Civili of Brescia.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To promote a reflection on the experience of the artistic workshop for children participating in the animation cinema project at the Spedali Civili of Brescia, focusing on the most effective methods enabling the patients to find renewal by redefining their perceptions of life as regards their health, as well as how the project is integrated within hospital procedures and how the use of symbolic esthetic expression succeeds in producing change or “self-medication” in the context of suffering and vulnerability.
Professional educators, pedagogists, animators and rehabilitation and art-therapy practitioners as well as hospital workers engaged in educational and pedagogical roles in the context of health care.
The publication describes the experience of the “Animated cartoons in the wards” project which, since 2012, has been ongoing at the Spedali Civili of Brescia (supported by AMI from 2013 to 2018) and conducted by the AVISCO (Scholastic Audio-Visual) Association.
In particular, the project takes place in six pediatric wards (pediatric surgery, neuropsychiatry and otolaryngology) and consists of the production of animated cartoons created by children between the ages of 5 and 7, patients in the hospital in Brescia.
The text, edited by a professor at the University of Brescia, uses an approach that is part of an ethno-pedagogical tradition aimed at “field research” employing participatory observation, interviews and the personal views of the protagonists. In fact, the project aims to gather and present different narrative interviews conducted with important figures of this initiative: the Director of the Brescia Children’s Hospital, AVISCO professionals and a young patient that benefited from the project as well as some parents and a health worker.
