It is impossible to tell a good story without acknowledging the human experience. We learn more about ourselves through the trials and triumphs we face every day. But sometimes we need something else, something fun, creative, and emotional to tell our stories. No other medium can do this like animation can. It is an art form with endless possibilities, unbound creativity, and limitless joy. Whether it’s toys that show how much we need each other or an ogre who learns that his greatest fear is actually what he needed all along. Families with superpowers teach us that our greatest strengths lie within our bonds to one another. Life’s many experiences have inspired vivid landscapes where we have felt understood, deep sadness, and joyous laughter. Where would we be without Barry B. Benson asking us “Do ya like jazz?” or Agnes letting us know how fluffy a unicorn is?

Each one of these stories reminds us that all people are united by human emotion. We may have different backgrounds and cultures, but animation can move us to laughter or tears. Help us celebrate the impact of animation on March 23rd in the Vines Center for Coffeehouse: Animated.
