12 Apr Developing an Ocean-Themed Children’s Story Book with the Asia Foundation’s Let’s Read Program
CTC is collaborating with the Let’s Read Program of the Asia Foundation to develop children’s books focused on marine conservation. As part of this project, we recently hosted a writing and illustration workshop on April 9-12, 2022 at our Center for Marine Conservation in Sanur, Bali There were a total of 10 participants who joined the workshop, including three writers from CTC. The writers and illustrators work together in the development of an ocean-themed children’s book.
The workshop explored methods of developing a children’s story book in detail. The writing workshop was facilitated by Eva Y Nukman, the co-founder and managing director of Litara Foundation, and Anna Farida. The illustrator workshop was facilitated by Fanny Santoso.
Through the development of children’s story books that tell engaging stories about marine life and conservation, we hope to be able to inspire children to save our oceans.
