Hearings-experienced young people launched their new Articulate Animation today (Wednesday 22 May).

The cartoon animation has been co-written, designed and voiced by some of Our Hearings, Our Voice (OHOV) Board Members. An independent board of children and young people with experience of the Children’s Hearings System.

The short film brings to life the importance of language in the Children’s Hearings System.

A joint initiative with Corporate Parents, Children’s Hearings Scotland and the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration, the animation stems from the work of the Language Leaders.

The young people are delighted with the final product and they got to watch it on the big screen at the film premiere at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.

Speaking afterwards, OHOV Board Member Vincent said: “Brilliant – you could really tell it was us that fed into it. People weren’t speaking for us, they were letting us do the talking. They really engaged well with us. I loved the way they included the blobs.”

OHOV Board Member Zodie added: “That was amazing. I really enjoyed the style and you can really tell that it came from lived experience and it was really nice to hear our little bits from the first meet up we had. It is really good!”
