LuLu Readers Fest at LuLu Mall Kochi
5th - 9th April 2017, 10.am to 10.pm
Lulu Mall is organising a reader’s festival, celebrating books from April 5th to 9th. Aimed at re-familiarizing people, especially the younger generation with the art of reading, visitors will get to experience a unique reading experience at the mall. Along with an extensive display and sale of over 3000 books of different genres, visitors can also pick up books for hours of relaxed reading at the carefully designed facility in the atrium of the mall. Acting as a makeshift free library, the facility can be accessed by any visitor of the mall from 10 AM to 10 PM.
Through the Lulu Reader’s Fest the mall is trying to get children to experience of wonder and joy of being surrounded by books. The lack of reading spaces for children in the city is one reason why this event is being held by the mall. The event will not just be focussed on reading, but will also be an interactive space where authors, illustrators, story-tellers and artists from all over India will come together to create fun workshops for kids every day. Seven workshops will be held daily from 11 AM to 7 PM for children in the age group of 5-12 years. Each workshop can accommodate 30 children who will be encouraged to explore their creativity through books with diverse activities ranging from Haiku and poetry, children’s theatre, story drama, calligraphy, musical storytelling, comic art, clowning, balloon art, folklore and much more. Some of the performers include theatre practitioner & performance story teller Vikram Sridhar of Around the Story Tree; writer, curator & publisher Aparna Raman of Timbuktoo; performer, trainer & storyteller Sangeeta Goel of Storywalahs; theatre personality Prashant Nori of Dramebaaz; storyteller, writer and educationalist Deepa Kiran of Story Arts India; trainer & facilitator Harish Bhuvan of Faith Foundation who clowns with a compassion; Calligraphy artist Shreyas Panduranga and comic artist Sreejita Biswas of StripTease the Mag.
Children can register for these workshops by paying a nominal fee of Rs.50 for each session. The registration shall be taken on the spot at the event venue. For more details, please contact 7559990026.
