What's a kletskop?

Third edition Kletskoppen Kindertaalfestival, Saturday 29th February 2020, Nijmegen

After a side trip to The Hague Kletskoppen will return to library De Mariënburg in Nijmegen on the special date of 29th February 2020 (leap day!). With all sorts of new language games, experiments, performances and reading sessions. Will you join us?

More information about the programme will follow soon. Just keep an eye on this website and on our Facebook page and Twitter account.

In the meantime, you can of course still look back at our 2018 edition. You can take a look at the pictures and the aftermovie. Or take a look at the articles in de Gelderlander and on Kennislink (both in Dutch).

Kennislink also wrote a nice report on Kletskoppen in The Hague. You can find the pictures here. Or see the aftermovie.

The second edition of Kletskoppen on 27th October 2018 was a beautiful, busy and succesful day. See below (or click here) for a photo report of the festival by Valerie van Hazendonk and Laura Luca (Jabber).
Also the Kletskoppen edition in The Hague on 29th September 2019 was a great day. Gerrit de Heus made a nice photo report.


In the period preceding the edition of Kletskoppen in 2018, we shared some sneak peek videos of the demonstrations that you could see at the festival. And we made aftermovies of Kletskoppen 2018 and Kletskoppen Den Haag. See below! (in Dutch).
