September 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
You are all invited to the opening of the new exhibition at The Pocko Gallery in Dalston featuring works from the Punanimation directory.
Punanimation was initially formed in 2015 as a Facebook group, with the aim to empower, promote and connect women, trans and non-binary people working in the largely male animation and motion industry, sharing advice and disseminating their work amongst friends. The group transformed into a fully fledged platform on International Women’s Day this year, to promote the work of their community and shine a light on some of the incredible non-male talent working in a “boys club” environment.
Punanimation’s community stands at 2,600 members and growing, whilst their online directory hosts over 200 diverse illustrators, animators and motion graphics designers working across the industry. They regularly organise meet ups, talks and screenings.
Co founders and friends Linn Fritz, Bee Grandinetti and Hedvig Alhberg have curated an exhibition of work at Pocko’s Dalston gallery to celebrate the brilliant motion and illustration talent they have assembled in the Punanimation directory. They will be presenting a selection of work from their members reimagining the Punanimation logo in their own styles alongside a series of animations.
Private View: 6th September 2018, 6.00pm – 9.00pm POCKO, 51A King Henry’s Walk, London N1 4NH
