9 November, 11am to 5pm
Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership will host a 2-day sectoral event as part of its 20-year anniversary celebrations. In partnership with Dublin Book Festival.
The event will explore the value of publishing with children, and interrogate how we can support children to be seen and heard within our literature, culture and society. With the ambitious vision of current policy to reach all children through cultural tuition by 2022, Kids’ Own seeks to ask how we make space for quality and depth of engagement to support children as cultural makers and creators in their own right.
Two practical workshops, exploring print making, digital media, book-making and folding techniques, are open to artists and writers who are interested in exploring meaningful processes of engagement with children and young people.
• 11am – 1pm: Workshop with Simon Spain
• 2pm – 4pm: Workshop with Alain Regnier (Belgium)
Tickets €10. For more information on each workshop please see the website: ark.ie/childrens-voices-are-we-listening
