A workers co-operative. Leeds Animation Workshop is a not-for-profit, cooperative company, which produces and distributes animated films and videos 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. Since the mid-1980's the Workshop has been run by five women, who between them carry out all stages of the production process, from initial research to final distribution. The projects are all produced in consultation with organisations and individuals involved in the relevant field. The Workshop specialises in making complex or sensitive issues more accessible to audiences, and at times offering an alternative point of view. As well as production and distribution, the Workshop has been involved in many other activities, such as organising screenings of films
