Community Partnerships — Yes I Can Unity Through Music & Education

Tink Tank Animate is so super thrilled to announce our partnership with California's Yes I Can Unity Through Music and Education. Yes I Can is an organization dedicated to giving neurodiversity the skills and opportunities to build a competitive career in the Arts. Through partnerships like ours, they are able to facilitate their clients with the best options. Here at Tink Tank the Yes I Can artists develop their portfolios in music, film, illustration, animation, voice-over acting, and of course WRITING! Unlike other institutions, Tink Tank does not develop their skills with exercises, we develop their skills through Complete Productions giving them a real chance to create their own paths.

Thank you Yes I Can, together we are changing the narrative, and Detroit appreciates your recognition as the new Independent Hollywood. We are Motown, which means Movement!

YIC continues to form community partnerships to provide YIC program participants with access to inclusive, community-based post-secondary educational programs, technical training programs, internships, and job opportunities.

Ep48. The Immense Emotional Power of Storytelling for Neurodiverse Individuals with Tawd Dorenfeld

Psychologist & Podcast Host Dr. Gwennyth Palafox interviews Founder and Lead Mentor Dorenfeld, in detail about the magic of Tink Tank. -

"In this episode, I connect with Tawd Dorenfeld, Founder and Lead Mentor of Tink Tank Animate, about the power of storytelling and the immense emotional value it brings to our neurodiverse community. We explore how the mentors at Tink Tank Animate follow strengths, support weaknesses, and include their artists in a process that empowers through doing and completing projects, which then creates a series of wins for individuals who don’t usually get this experience. Tink Tank provides a truly unique experience for self-expression and sharing voices through an artistic art form.

1 year facilitating Artists with Learning Disabilities in the Arts of Storytelling. This Coloring Book Celebrates our Year

This wonderful, lively coloring book FOR ALL AGES was completely created by Artists on the Autism Spectrum. These artists all attend the Tink Tank Animate program where they are Mentored and Produced in the Arts of Storytelling. With Tink Tank they produce Animated Films, Illustrated Books, Radio-Plays, Short Films, Novels, and other forms of Storytelling. They are the visionaries, we at Tink Tank are the facilitators, mentors, producers, champions, and these artist's very own professional assistants. Your purchase of this Coloring Book brings great confidence and inspiration to each and every Tink Tanker (that's what we call em). Thank you for your support and be sure to search out the Self-Published works of each and every Tink Tanker. www.TinkTankAnimate.comSign your son or daughter up today and watch them write tomorrow.
