Kaos in the City (2003-2004) was a collaborative animated film project designed for young individuals facing homelessness or living temporary housing to take part in a high quality arts experience that reflected their situation. The project offered sixteen young people aged 15-18 from Connexions and Life Housing an exciting opportunity to access new media and skills in model-making, animation, storyboarding, editing, and set design. The film constituted a platform to voice the young people's ideas and to present their experiences living in Oxford, while developing their confidence.
Although Fusion Arts had previously delivered projects using film and video, this was the first time that we had used animation and worked with this particular age group in its production. Furthermore, Kaos in the City was selected for screening at the Co-operative Young FilmMakers Festival.
The project was run and supported by Fusion Arts in conjunction with Connexions and Life Housing.
