What's a kletskop?

Kletskoppen 2020 - what a day!

Wow, what a day it was! On Saturday 29th February the third Nijmegen edition of Kletskoppen took place in the Mariënburg Library. It was a great day with lots of new and surprising language games, experiments, performances, workshops and reading sessions. And many, many happy children and parents!

Do you want to see how it was, or enjoy the day all over again? Watch the aftermovie or see the beautiful photos. Or read the Kletskrant (in Dutch), made on the spot by children visiting the festival.

For an overview of what you could do at the festival see here.

Look here for an interview with Chief-Kletskop Sharon Unsworth in De Gelderlander (in Dutch), two days before the festival. After the festival she was interviewed for the VPRO-Gids. And of course there was the promotion movie of Confidans.
