Meet the Volunteers: Hannah Doyle



This week, meet Hannah Doyle, who has been volunteering with us since January and is helping out with our Saturday Visual Arts Classes.

"I graduated in 2010 from Edinburgh Napier University, with a BA (Hons) in Photography and Film. My work has focused on a range of visual media, combining moving image with stills, sound and illustration to build up an overall story. I also use stop-motion animation to illustrate vocal and musical recordings, along with time-lapse photography. My short documentary 'Mum' has been shown at Film Directing 4 Women and the London International Documentary Festival.

I'm currently volunteering with the Create workshops with children aged between 5 and 12, which is the most fun part of my week - it's taught me so much about creative thought and about their approach to the artistic process. I've particularly enjoyed using animation software to demonstrate how a story can be built up piece by piece, and I've loved working with the kids on batik pieces and seeing the ideas they come up with. When I first found out about Project Ability I wanted to get involved and I'm so glad I have- the experience so far has been invaluable."

Thanks a lot for your time and efforts Hannah, it is much appreciated by both staff and young artists!
