Kids’ Own and SMILY launch ‘Metamorphs’ An All New Animation!


In 2023 Kids’ Own worked with SMILY LGBTQ+ Youth Group to create an animated video that explores self-expression in an artistic and playful way and that allowed the group to observe and reference some of the things that are a feature of their lives.  We are delighted to share that video “Metamorphs” with you today!

Assisted by our associate-writers Mary Branley and Sarah O’Keeffe, and animator Fergal Brennan the participants had great fun with this creative outlet and have made a very special video.

Mary said of the project “Congratulations to the SMILY participants on their new video Metamorphs. They were a hard working, fun loving, group who sang their way through all the workshops as they created tons of sketches for the animation. We look forward to meeting again in a new creative project.”




We’d like to thank Youth Work Ireland North Conaught, our partners on this project, and the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth for kindly funding this exciting project.
