The start of BIBIANA Denmark’s work was in the fall of 2011, where we opened the doors for our first art exhibition for children: Wondrous tales.
At the exhibition we presented 123 of the world’s finest, award-winning children’s book illustrations from the Biennal of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB), which has awarded the finest international prizes in children’s books illustration since 1967.
Because we want to communicate art directly to children, we chose to show ‘Wondrous Tales’ in Field’s and at Ørestad library. It was a huge succes: 40 school classes participated in the educational program and all of our 11 exhibition workshops were filled to the breaking point.
Since then we have grown, and we have grown a lot. We have financed, developed and created a number of different art- and cultural projects to children, with children and by children. We have made exhibitions, educational programs, large scale art about human rights, a kids club, sailing expeditions, a world library and much much more – all of this based on children’s book illustrations.
