Jemima, now a Role Model for 1Voice, made this animation in 2009.
It was her work experience project when at Northern Counties School in Newcastle. Made at the Karten Media Centre (part of the Percy Hedley Foundation). It was created to advertise residential weekends organised by 1Voice - Communicating Together to support young communication aid and AAC users and their families. Jemima attended the weekends in Blackpool when younger, which inspired her to use her communication aid more creatively.
Part of the National Year of Communication - 1Voice says HELLO
