The United Kingdom is the country of honour at the BD à Bastia festival taking place from 2 to 6 April 2014. You can discover the vitality of young British illustrators and writers, and meet many authors during exhibitions, debates and workshops.
The British cartoonists Glyn Dillon, Karrie Fransman, Ian Culbard and Fumio Obata will be present at the festival, along with the children's books illustrator Viviane Schwarz. Illustrators Nick White, Ben Newman, and even the renowned Glen Baxter will participate in the event.
The festival includes workshops in which writers share their techniques and experience. Workshops for children are also on the programme, and primary and secondary school groups are specially invited to come to the festival. The interactions with British authors will also be an opportunity for young people to practice their English while carrying out creative activities.
