Leeds Animation Workshop is a not-for-profit, cooperative company, which produces and distributes animated films and films on social and educational issues.
The organisation began in 1976 as a group of women friends who came together to make a film about the need for pre-school childcare. After completing WHO NEEDS NURSERIES? – WE DO! the group was formally established in 1978 as Leeds Animation Workshop.
Throughout its history the Workshop has been run by women, who have carried out all stages of the production process, from initial research to final distribution.
