Wednesday Workshop – Collaborating with Kids

Have your kids (or polite nephews and nieces) laughed occasionally at your material and told you how great your ideas are…?

But how do you really know whether your idea, programme, game or story is one that lots of kids will love? Come to this workshop to find out how to work in a meaningful way with children so that you can build your project and so that the children themselves can feel part of the creative process. Experts, including writers, user-researchers and theatre producers, will share their experiences of working with kids to make lasting and successful IP.

jeff-nortonCollaborating with Kids is for writers, animators, producers (development, TV, digital) and anyone making content for kids from pre-school to teens.

The workshop will be led by Olivia Dickinson, who has over 10 years’ experience creating and testing digital content for children, having worked at Amazon, the BBC and Nickelodeon.
