Crossing Border Festival
Crossing Border is an inspiring cultural festival based in The Hague with a unique combination of spoken word, music, special film screenings and visual arts. Over the years Crossing Border has evolved to become one of the foremost international, interdisciplinary literature and music festivals in Europe.
We are currently working hard on the program of Crossing Border 2024. Check the Crossing Border Festival website for the latest updates.
Crossing Border Kids
The Crossing Border children's program brings a selection of authors and illustrators of children's literature who showcase the best artistic and literary quality in books aimed at pre-readers (0-4), beginning readers (4-8) and middle school students (8-12). In addition, there will be a number of activities that will appeal to teenagers. You can expect hands-on workshops, interviews about the creative and artistic process behind the stories and of course storytime (reading) from the authors themselves.
With a selection of authors and illustrators, the organization has tried to bring a diversity of voices, languages and life experiences. They believe that stories connect us all and weaving a cobweb of stories can germinate compassion, kindness and understanding in the world.
