Medjunarodni djećji festival šibenik
The first festival was held in 1958, the result of the initiative and efforts of several children arts enthusiasts—but it quickly turned into a big, complex, internationally important festival. It is a multi-disciplinary multi-media cultural event, which not only displays but actively invites participation. It is a review of the best works for children as well as of the best works by children. The cultural and pedagogical reason for the festival is that it promotes the aesthetic education of children and young adults, and develops all artistic forms of children’s creativity. The festival not only initiates, but also stimulates many ideas in art forms for children and by children—dramatic and musical arts, puppetry, film, literature and visual arts.
