EDUCATION / Community Collaborations


Aurora Picture Show's community collaborations bring creativity, personal expression, critical thinking, and media literacy to kids throughout the Greater Houston area. We collaborate with a wide range of schools, community centers, organizations, and hospitals to conduct creative workshops serving more than 1500 kids and teens each year. 
If you are an educator interested in Aurora conducting hands-on filmmaking projects with your school or group, or if you're an artist/educator interested in working with our ongoing projects, please contact Education Director Camilo Gonzalez.


Here are some fantastic short films created through Aurora's collaborative workshops and residencies...



INVENTIONS
The culmination of a year-long stop-motion animation project produced by Aurora Picture Show and The Periwinkle Foundation as part of the Arts in Medicine Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Hematology Service at Texas Children’s Hospital. Young patients imagined "inventions" that would make the world a better place and created short animated vignettes about them. 
 
 

 
MAGIC POWERS
Animated vignettes by young patients and their siblings (ages 4-16) at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers in which they creatively imagine their own special powers and how they could change the world. This project was produced by Aurora Picture Show and The Periwinkle Foundation as part of the Arts in Medicine Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Hematology Service at Texas Children’s Hospital. 
 
 

 
POSTCARDS FROM SPACE
