Following a series of meetings already since 2015, in October 2016 MEdIES has inaugurated a new collaboration with the Department of Graphic Design of the Faculty of Graphic Arts and Design of the Technological Institute of Athens (TEI).
For two academic years (2016-17 and 2017-18) the students of Graphic Design will work for the production of a series of short video animations on water, with the scientific support of MIO-ECSDE, GWP-Med and MEdIES, and particularly prof. Scoullos.
The central topic is water, but the students can freely choose whether they follow a scientific, awareness raising, informative, or merely entairtaining apporach, about the realities and the challenges that this valuable resource faces today.
In the first year the students will develop their scenarios translated to storyboards (cartoons).
In the second year the designed-on-paper cartoons will take the form of short video animations.
