Book Dash is thrilled to announce that in partnership with the Otto Foundation‘s #READTODREAM campaign, we piloted our first ever virtual Book Dash to make new books amidst COVID-19 enforced lockdowns worldwide.
We couldn’t be in the same room, but the magic of technology allowed us still to create beautiful new books together, while apart.
For this event, we’re piloted collaborating virtually. There were three teams of top local talent working for 12 hours straight. Following the Book Dash methodology, each team created a brand new book in just one day! Teams consisted of a writer, illustrator and designer. For this pilot, all participating creatives were drawn from previous Book Dash events. The creatives joined together from across the country to volunteer their time and talent. Together, we added to our existing library of books available, as always, for free to children everywhere.
We also translated, printed and distributed the books we created in service of our vision: Every child should own one hundred books by the age of five.
In case you missed it live, you can still watch the teams present the stories they created on the day either below, or via our Youtube channel here: www.youtube.com/c/BookdashOrg
