Animate Projects




Animate Projects is an internationally renowned strategic agency working out of Derby and London that supports and champions creative animation practice.

Our mission is to engage the public with the creativity and craft of this critically under-represented art form and we achieve this through developing new work, supporting artists to create thought provoking projects, engaging with audiences across digital and physical contexts, maintaining an extensive online archive and resource, advocacy and promoting critical debate.

The Animate Collection is an internationally renowned resource housed on A digital archive of films, video interviews, documentation, tests, essays and interviews, it includes works by many key figures in contemporary British animation, visual and new media artists, including the films produced for the Arts Council England/Channel 4 Animate scheme (1990–2009).

Animate advocates for the recognition of the value of animation as an artform, and the need for support for the wider independent animation sector, initiating and leading Animation Alliance UK.

Animate is a registered charity that receives no public funding for core costs.
