Major Events and Festivals Organised

We enjoy what we do,  and believe that organisations are built on passion, creativity and the social relevance of their idea.

We run Lahore International Children’s Film Festival, our first project that we started  in 2007. It brings world’s best films made for, by and about children and young people to Pakistan.

The Little Art is an inclusive organisation, which mean, we bring children and youth from all social backgrounds to our programs. We work with Govt. and private school children, as well as street, margenalized and speacial children.

It is not important for us to know from where children and youth come from, and what is their background. We care what are their dreams and where they want to reach.

We want to diversify in various art forms, so each year we kept creating innovative projects in visual arts, photography, theatre and puppetry.

In visual arts we run ArtBeat – National ChildArt Competition and Exhibitions, which has a theme each year for children to draw and paint. We put an online exhibition of all submitted artwork, hold exhibitions in art galleries in Lahore and Islamabad, give cash prizes to children and promote their work to international art exhibitions.

We have developed a puppetry book, that explains how to make puppets and use it with children in formal and informal teaching. We have conducted workshops with organisations that run street children’s shelter homes.

We organise various competitions and workshops around the year.

We are also offering consultancy services that can help us run the show.
