Book Dash Jozi 2017: Applications are open!


On a single Book Dash day, creative teams work fast to make beautiful children’s books that anyone can freely access, print and distribute.

Our next event is sponsored by the wonderful people at Worldreader and will take place at the Goethe-Institut Johannesburg on Saturday, the 25th of February 2017.

The Goethe Institut has also generously made it possible for six writers and six illustrators from many different African countries to participate in this special event. This means there are very limited spaces available, so we're looking for the cream of Jozi's crop!

If you're not a writer, illustrator, designer or editor, but are still passionate about children's literacy, why not apply to help out in a support role? We need photographers, videographers, tech support, art directors and social media storytellers to make Book Dash a success.

All the best!,
