About the Festival

Kids and adults alike are invited to discover, play, imagine, think, and create as part of the Tilt Kids Festival. A new initiative co-presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in partnership with venues through the city, the festival invites the most inventive and forward-thinking creators from France and around the globe to redefine art for young audiences.

We are thrilled to embark on this new adventure with a network of leading cultural institutions: The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, The New Victory Theater, The Invisible Dog Art Center, and Museum of Food + Drink.

Join us for this month-long adventure and let’s reimagine the world!
