Book Dash Jozi, 27 June 2015

Book Dash JoziWe teamed up with the lovely folk at African Storybook to bring Book Dash to Jozi on 27 June 2015. Teams worked together to create new children’s books in just twelve hours.

See the books

Over forty professional writers, illustrators, and designers gathered, supported by a team of photographers, technical and art directors, storytellers, caterers, and logistics wizards. Everyone was a volunteer, and everything they created is their gift to the world.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page, and join our mailing list to hear about future events.

Huge thanks to the Goethe Institute for hosting us in their wonderful venue for our book-creation day.
