Kids ZoneCognac European Literatures 2020

Focus on Sapin !

On the occasion of its 33rd edition, the LEC Festival is being maintained but in digital version, LEC and the Foundation invite children aged 6 to 14 and parents to experience the festival from home!

A lot of activities will be offered and posted on Facebook, Instagram accounts and Youtube channels: Flamenco, reading, linocut workshops …

Created in 1988 on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Jean Monnet, the Cognac European Literature festival works to promote European literatures and is a place of meetings and dialogues between writers and the public. This year, authors, illustrators and artists from Spain and France are meeting online to experience and share the Hispanic warmth from their homes.

After a first edition of the Kids Zone at the Foundation for Lille, Brussels and Amsterdam, the Kids Zone is back, but this time, focused on Spain! More than 10 workshops / tutorials allowing children (and parents!) to discover Hispanic culture will be offered to you during this weekend.

To view the workshops, nothing could be simpler! Connect to the Foundation’s and LEC’s Instagram, Facebook accounts or Youtube channels at the times indicated on the program and watch the videos!

We are expecting you to be numerous this weekend!
