Thank you!

The 15th edition of the South Ken Kids Festival swept by November with a whoosh! Our 15 amazing guest illustrators have now returned to their homes after five days of tremendous events, leaving behind a flock of children (and adults too!) with eyes all sparkles, some pretty amazing drawings, and maybe even a bit of glitter in the cracks of the Institut’s flooring!

We would like to thank everyone who helped us make it such a success: our guest illustrators, partners, colleagues, volunteers, friends… and of course all of you who came to the Fest! See you next year: same time, same place, same outrageous fun! And in the meantime, check out our Facebook page for picture galleries, videos, updates about competition winners, original drawings, and more!

And if you are still not convinced this festival is designed for you, check out what the experts said about us…
