Georgia is the guest country of honour at this year’s Berlin Book Islands festival. Since 2009, kulturkind has organized this annual event for children’s literature, working with numerous literary institutions and experts from the world of children’s books. Inviting festival-goers to experience the cultural and artistic diversity of children’s literature from Georgia, kulturkind welcomes several exceptional Georgian illustrators to Berlin. A varied and lively programme of events opens up insights into Georgia’s cultural diversity as expressed through its literature and illustration.
Founded in 2008, kulturkind is a registered charity, which develops cultural programmes for children along with partners from the worlds of art, culture, education and research, and supports cultural exchange through education, exhibition and communication.
