North York Arts and the Toronto Animation Image Society (TAIS) have teamed up to present our second edition of The Animation Project! Our participants have been working hard during the course of several weeks of workshops facilitated by Cristal Buemi.

Now they want to show their work! Join NYA, TAIS, and our participants on December 8th at 6pm for a LIVE screening of animations! We will be holding the screening on our Youtube channel so don’t forget to subscribe!

This program was for those ages 55+ living in North York,  priority  given to Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour as well as to 2SLGBTQ+ community members and Newcomers (people who arrived in Canada within 7 years).

Online Premiere: December 8th, 2021 6pm


Instructor : Cristal Buemi

Born in Puerto Rico and raised in Canada, Cristal Buemi is a multimedia artist that holds a BA from Ryerson University and an MA from Bau, Design College of Barcelona. While multidisciplinary by nature, (animation, video, photography, collage and digital design), her work pushes frame-by-frame boundaries by exploring the materiality and inherent beauty found in the minutia.
