On Friday, November 9th, the children’s Book Fair (Feria Internacional del libro Infantil y Juvenil) in Mexico City organized a professional event around Creative Industries. Jan Willem Bult (Netherlands) and Yamile Sandoval (Colombia) talked about how to tell the world to kids.
A travelling suitcase, loaded with the best contents for children, arrived in Mexico in May 2017. Its contents were as valuable as a hidden treasure; a careful selection of programs, short films, fictions and non-fictions from around the world that empowered children and reflected them as active actors in their stories.
