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.

The films 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 by women and black directors, and providing workshop sessions in basic animation for adults and young people.
