The 15th Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) will take place from 23 - 26 May 2024, at the National Library Building, Singapore, celebrating the theme of "Curiosity" and with Philippines as the Country of Focus.
Theme - Curiosity
The Asian Festival of Children’s Content takes on the theme of “Curiosity” in its 15th edition.
Curiosity drives exploration, innovation and the imagination. It can open up possibilities, expand one's worldview and spur children to embark on a path of discovery.
How can we nurture a child's curiosity through books and encourage them to explore the world around them? How can modern technologies be harnessed to cultivate children's curiosity and engagement in reading? In what ways can cultural diversity be shown in stories and works from Southeast Asia and Asia, that can shape children's curiosity and develop a sense of the self?
With over 100 programmes, featuring more than 80 writers and speakers from Singapore and around the world, AFCC 2024 will explore the different dimensions of “Curiosity” through children’s books, stories and performances.
