Speaking each other’s language: The development of an animation prototype with the intention to toggle the language barrier among children of the Greek and the Turkish Cypriot community

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article describes the design process of a test animation prototype that aims to improve communication among children of the two conflicting communities in Cyprus by encouraging them to learn each other’s language. The prototype is based on research undergone with the conflicting parties, where their perception of the conflict and on each other was addressed and researched. In essence, it is discussing the project’s reception by a Cypriot audience and is encouraging further work and research to be conducted as part of a reconciliation process on the island, and on the potential of the medium of animation for the purpose of peace-building.
