Participatory Animation and Film Projects

Litza worked on a range of participatory Animation and film projects gaining funding from the Arts Council, The Lottery fund, and a range of charitable organisations. The work sought to use film to enhance the social inclusion of, and respect for, communities and ideas not represented or misrepresented by mainstream media. The films enjoyed prestigious screenings in West End Cinemas, the NFT, I.C.A. , Tate Modern, the B.B.C. and exhibited in National and International festivals. Due to her award winning work with young offenders and prisoners Litza was invited to be part of a National Consortium to devise training for arts practitioners working with vulnerable and volatile groups.
