Flavourcel is an animation collective formed in 2018 by ten artists based on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories, also known as Vancouver. They work collaboratively to make short-form experimental animations such as GIFs, music videos, installations, and more, to extend the contemporary narrative of what animation is and what it can be. Collective decision-making, resource sharing, and a commitment to play is at the core of all that they do. Through this, Flavourcel aims to uplift its members, as well as the communities it belongs to.
Flavourcel is Alia Hijaab, Chhaya Naran, Chris Strickler, gil goletski, Harlo Martens, Josh Neu, Julia Song, Kat G Morris, Lana Connors, and Laurel Pucker.
