Dolphins Barn: Creative Digital Animation Series
Published on 12th February 2018
In April and May of 2017 Dolphin's Barn Library hosted a series of workshops where young historians learned how to combine research, storytelling, drawing and digital animation to tell a tale from Irish history.
Expert facilitators included historian Conor Kostick and author and illustrator Alan Nolan.
The result is this exciting video set in Dublin 1920. In it Tadhg undertakes a dangerous mission to deliver a message to Countess Markievicz. On the way he evades policemen, befriends Victoria Jacobs and is shot at by the 'Black and Tans'!
The project was supported by the UNESCO City of Literature office.
