About the Festival
The second annual Tilt Kids Festival invites you on a journey across the arts—and on our train, there is no quiet car!
Tilt encourages a sense of freedom and adventure in the ways young people encounter art. Kids and adults alike will discover new works by international artists that offer mind-opening experiences and celebrate diversity across cultures. No matter how old you are, we hope you’ll join us this spring and let curiosity be your guide!
Tilt Kids Festival is produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) in partnership with leading cultural institutions, which this year include The Brooklyn Public Library, The Invisible Dog, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
