Asian Festival of Children's Content's 
Sixth Iteration Sees Many Firsts
30 May to 6 June 2015, 9am to 6pm
Central Library (NLB) Plaza, Victoria Street

The Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) returns for the sixth iteration this year with an expanded programme engaging creators, producers, distributors, and end-users of children's content under one roof. 

This year's AFCC will host a total of 111 speakers, including 57 local speakers and 54 international speakers from 14 different countries around the world including the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Australia, Hong Kong, France, Malaysia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Syria, Korea and Japan. 

AFCC will also be offering several public and ticketed programmes for the first time. One of such programmes is Fun with Languages, which has been especially curated to enhance children's learning of their mother tongues. This free-for-public, family-oriented programme features interactive activities in Singapore's four official languages, English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil, in the form of performances, skits, story-telling and cross talks.

China is AFCC's country of focus this year, with 10 Chinese speakers including Wang Quangen, Professor of Chinese Language and Literature School at the Beijing Normal University, author Wang Yimei, and Zhao Wuping, Vice President of the Shanghai Translation Publishing House who have been invited to present topics as varied as "Integration and Development in Children's Literature in Asia", "Cultural Differences Between Chinese and Western Children's Stories" and "Publication and Translation of Children's Literature in China".
