Festival and Events Program – All ages

Our programs team is highly skilled at delivering workshops at festivals, conferences, markets and events of all kinds.

The Book Cubby Workshop

The Book Cubby Workshop is a drop-in activity suitable for events, festivals, holiday programs and libraries that brings the magic of publishing to children and family members of all ages. A team of Kids’ Own Publishing artists will guide participants to produce text and collage illustrations for their own 8-page origami-fold ‘hot dog’ book. Each book will be ‘published’ (photocopied) – one copy is kept for display in the cubby and the others are shared with family and friends. These workshops take place alongside the Kids’ Own Book Cubby – a specially designed portable library in which books made by children are displayed and celebrated. The Book Cubby is a place where children can read stories written by other children and discover other worlds.

The Roaming Book Pedaller with her library of books by children for children cycles around fairs and festivals gathering children and their families to join the story.
