AFCC 2020 is back on
3 & 4 October
The Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) will be returning 3–4 October 2020 in an entirely digital format. The Singapore Book Council (SBC), organiser of the AFCC, has decided to reconceive the annual festival as a two-day digital symposium in response to the pandemic.
For more information, please refer to the press release here.
The Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) is an annual festival that promotes and advocates the creation, development and appreciation of quality Asian stories for children and young adults. Organised by the Singapore Book Council, the festival's main programmes comprise conference presentations, panels, masterclasses, workshops, and lectures.
AFCC is a unique event in Asia that provides an opportunity for various practitioners, including writers, illustrators, translators, editors, publishers, academics, teachers, librarians and parents to meet, learn, hone their craft, and develop cross-cultural collaborations.
AFCC 2020: Voyages
AFCC 2020 celebrates the theme "Voyages", which was chosen before the outbreak.
The choice is especially apt, as the Festival invites the participants to envision a world filled with possibilities in the digital space, even in the face of so many disruptions and much uncertainty now.
AFCC aims to traverse boundaries, redefine narratives and discover new truths, as it seeks new avenues of sharing Asian stories for children and young adults.
