Brilliantly bilingual throughout, this year’s South Ken Kids Festival is an occasion to highlight the themes of Kindness, Fraternity and Diversity in children’s writing, illustration, translation, and children’s books in all their glory.
This special online edition is also the occasion to look back at 5 years of creative residencies with artists and illustrators Delphine Perret, Barroux, Baudoin, Alexandre Franc and Magali Le Huche. Through as selection of short clips and pictures displayed on our social media, we will travel down memory lane and rediscover Delphine’s travel log, Barroux, Baudoin and Alexandre Franc’s stunning murals, and Magali le Huche’s original sketches and Beatlemania performance.
