Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC)
The Singapore Book Council, which organises the Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC), has rescheduled the 11th edition of AFCC to 3 to 4 October 2020, due to the evolving Covid-19 outbreak. The theme for AFCC 2020 is “Voyages”, where audiences are invited to envision a world filled with possibilities as the festival traverses boundaries, redefines narratives and discovers new truths. But, in response to the situation, AFCC had decided to scale down the festival to two days and is making parts of the festival digital.
As a prelude to AFCC, the Book Council will be organising the popular Book Illustrators Gallery (BIG), an exhibition that showcases the best illustrations from Asian picture books from 1–30 June 2020 at the National Library Building.
The full programme and new venue of AFCC will be announced at a later date.
