Introduction

The Little Art produces Lahore International Children’s Film Festival and Children’s Performing Arts Festival, holds film-making workshops for children and young people, organizes workshops in photography, digital art, stop motion, animation and performing arts.

We are a youth-led organization that is determined, through numerous artistic avenues, media in particular, to promote the principals and ideals of democracy, equality, civil rights, community, prosperity, higher education, religious and cultural tolerance and sustaining cultural heritage. Children and young people are our audience.

We focus on developing innovative arts education projects to engage children and young people in alternative education and learning opportunities. We work with schools, universities, organizations, media houses and networks who share the same values.

Our group comprises young professionals, carrying extensive background in arts-education, film-making, marketing and development, event management and arts. We are deeply commited to the arts, and believe that children, irrespective of their social class, gender, family background, income status or education level have an equal right to opportunities of creative expression.
