Hosting organization is a cartoon studio located at the countryside. The studio is run by a family named Chayka. They have already experience in management of international artistic projects including children with limited opportunities. They develop artistic projects for kids living at the countryside and in families with difficult background. Kids at this region have no opportunities to visit art or sport studios, like kids from cities have it. The aim of the project is to create an atmosphere of artistic inspiration and freedom of expression. The project is unique, because the hosting centre having a large experience of participating in international projects keeps working at the remote Russian countryside far away from capitals and big cities.
While creating a cartoon, kids learn how to make a short animated movie, make editing, cut, sound record.
