FICCI to host children's publishing conclave Scrapbook
Print Week , Jul 26, 2017
The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) will organise a children’s publishing conclave, titled Scrapbook, on 19 August 2017.
Focused on ‘empowering children’s publishing,’ FICCI instituted this platform to explore possible collaboration between various actors of the eco-system including children’s content creators, publishers, off-line and online service providers, technology distrupters, teachers, schools, parents, children, and policy makers.
The conclave will also focus on the important aspects of a child’s individual learning requirements and the vital role publishers can play in addressing the same.
The daylong conclave will have two tracks — business sessions and children’s sessions.
The business sessions will focus on issues like content liberalisation; gender misrepresentation in children’s books; harnessing multiple intelligence with content; promoting book reading culture among 140-word Twitter generation; and technology play – books, screens and children’s brain.
The children’s sessions will feature workshop on children’s writing; sensitisation about respecting IP; panel of young authors; storytelling session; and session on comics.
