The “children-spectators” 2022

The Exhibition “The Children-Spectators” is organised within the framework of the “Mapping – A map on the aesthetics of performing arts for early years” a four-year project supported by the European Union. The partnership involves 18 partners from 17 European countries, among which the Bologna Children’s Book Fair: theatres, institutions and artists that have established a deep relationship with very young children over time.

For its fourth edition, 36 illustrations from 20 countries and regions have been selected by a jury of experts made up of Roberto Frabetti (Teatro La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi, Jury Chairman), Giovanna Ballin (Edizioni Corraini), Giorgia Grilli (University of Bologna), Philip Giordano (illustrator).

The illustrators selected are included in the exhibition “The Children-Spectators” presented at the Visioni di futuro – Visioni di teatro Festival of Bologna’s Teatro La Baracca Testoni Ragazzi (15 March - 31 May 2022) and online on the BCBF Galleries section for the large public of the Fair.
