Asian Girls in Haslingden

It was a really good day today; we held a day long session at Haslingden Library with a group of girls and young women, creating animations based on a poem written last year by another group from the same library.

Led by Rehmat Gangreker and supported by Shamshad Khan, Arry Nessa and Elisa Sarchi, we watched some of the animations already made for Different Moons and then the girls decided which parts of the poem – A Bengali Girl in Haslingden – they would choose to animate. Lunch was provided for everyone in the early afternoon…

Anne Bullock and Leesa Amin from the Youth Service joined us for the session, and Habiba Shenza dropped by to join us for the lunch. It was great to see so many people enjoying the work being done by the girls. These workshops continue after a holiday break next weekend – with two further sessions before the film will be completed.
