The International Children’s Festival, Sibenik Croatia

The International Children’s Festival was founded in 1958. Its main goal is to promote the esthetic upbringing of children and youth, and to encourage and develop all artistic forms of children’s creativity. 

Both professional creations for children and children’s creations are given attention. 
The Festival is fulfilling its goals through two main activities:

− organizing yearly performances of selected theater groups( drams, puppet shows, musicals ), picture shows, artistic exhibitions and children’s exhibitions, with participants from Croatia and abroad;

― organizing conferences about the creativity and art for children, and publishing relevant foundings which should influence the future development of art for children.
