The Mission // Who are we?//
The Travelling Multicultural Book Carnival...
This is Book Love is an award winning collective of Educators, Artists, Musicians, Creatives, Aunties, Uncles, Parents and Grandparents working together to make multicultural matter.
In schools, libraries, galleries, on screens and even on our high streets - the stark lack of culturally inclusive representation, is sadly too obvious.
We at 'Book Love' have made it our mission to change this AND to change the narrative and the Travelling Multicultural Book Carnival is spreading the 'Book Love'.
We are curating, showcasing and bringing together the best multicultural content the world of arts has to offer and we're taking it on tour! Schools, Nurseries, Public and corporate spaces, Markets...you name it - we're there!
New and exciting childrens' books, young adult fiction, art, stationery, fashion, toys and so much more - all with one focus - to positively portray the beautiful multicultural world around us.
'Book Love' takes you on a journey of discovery, where those that don't see themselves - find themselves...
Thisisbooklove.com and we represent!
The stats released this year, to the right are dire and we have been on a mission for the last few years, school-by-school, nursery-by-nursery, high street by high street to revolutionise the landscape of literature.
This continues to be our main focus, because our children and young people deserve nothing less! We are working closely with publishers, self-published and established writers and illustrators to redress the balance.
We get everyone excited about each others' cultural heritage, hoping to create a better understanding of one another, a love for self and a boosting of esteem, which is second to none.
Through reading, learning and cultural sharing, we can aim to build a more cohesive and understanding society where we are less suspicious of each other - a place built on unity, peace and of course booklove!
Our children and young people deserve nothing less!
