    In this paper we’ll be presenting what is and the results of the project called “Animating our island’s culture”. The main
    idea behind this project is to produce animations that tells the history of the people from a city in Brazil called Florianópolis
    and that has contributed to create our culture. The name of this project came from the fact that the city is placed in an
    island. But besides aiming on producing cartoon animations, what differs this project from others projects with this same
    goal, is the fact that this project is focused on training young kids from low-income communities from our city, teaching
    them how to produce animation. This paper will show the result of the first year of this project when everything is just in
    the beginning and many problems have been encountered.
