In the run-up of the Night of Ideas and opening the Night, the Little Night offers the opportunity to the youngest to sharpen their imagination, widen their creativity and express themselves through a series of interactive and multimedia events.

Let’s Imagine Together

Thursday 25 January 16.00 – 17:30 – at the Institut français, Bibliothèque Quentin Blake

Animated from Paris by children’s author Anaïs Vaugelade through live video, and based on the game Once Upon a Time (Il était une fois), this collective writing workshop will involve kids from London, Paris, Dublin, Dakar and Marrakech. They will engage on short debates and share their views on various topics in a fun and educative way.

From Dreams to Revolutions

Several British and French schools in the UK will be inviting their pupils to reflect on the main topics of the Night.
Primary schools will share their pupils’ drawings, collages and other visual productions on the themes of night, dream, and imagination, and secondary school students will participate in the debate by working on the themes of space, women in the world, and revolutions, sending special ambassadors to the Night’s panels, and producing videos on these themes.
