About the Festival

“French in origin, fantastical in concept, and freewheeling in execution”The New York Times

Each spring, Tilt Kids Festival presents adventurous art for all audiences at venues across New York City.

Kids and adults alike discover original works by some of the world’s most renowned creators and thinkers, and enjoy fun, unique, mind-expanding experiences. Tilt encourages a sense of freedom and adventure in the ways young people encounter art. Multicultural, sophisticated, impertinent, Tilt is truly New York!

Tilt is produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) in partnership with other leading cultural institutions in New York City.
