This lab involved eighteen students with skills in research, storytelling, illustration and book design. The stories these students developed were themed around growing up and issues of change that take place in the personal lives of government school children today.
Through field research, students were required to understand the value of storybooks as well as the lives of children in this context – Reading skills, learning needs, personal issues and the identities of stakeholders were all important. Students then developed concept notes and used a rigorous design methodology; to plan, develop, iterate and evaluate their storybooks. It is intended that the final books will be licensed and distributed through Indian publishing houses and NGO’s.
