What we're about

Greetings from the German Book Office! We trust this finds you well as we write to you about our two-day annual fest for professionals in the field of children´s content – JUMPSTART – which is back with an exciting new theme in 2014- “Let’s Play”. We are calling out to all writers, artists, illustrators, animators, innovators, educators, librarians, publishers, filmmakers, storytellers, graphic designers to join in this two-day festival. We invite you to register for JUMPSTART 2014[ www.jumpstartfest.com ]where we look at ways in which we - as writers, illustrators, artists, storytellers, designers and creators in general – can explore the dimensions of ‘play’ informing the process of creating content for children. Whether it be writing, illustrating, animating or developing a game, we wonder - what makes ‘play’ possible? How do we encounter the ‘play’ with words and pictures, animation and accessory? And then what does ‘play’ means in an everyday learning environment and how is it useful? We hope to explore play in all its polysemy: the gaming of play, play in domestic, public, virtual spaces of sport and leisure and the embodiment & practice of play. Jumpstart 2014 in Bangalore will inspire you with Panel Discussions and presentations by our eminent speakers and Workshops by an award winning author and renowned illustrator. For more details on Masterclasses, go to http://jumpstartfest.com/class/Writer´s_Masterclass.html for Writer´s Masterclass and http://jumpstartfest.com/class/Illustrator´s_Masterclass.html for Illustrator´s Masterclass.
