The three day event will consist of  the Teachers’ Literature Festival (TLF) on 27th and the Children’s Literature Festival (CLF) (28-29 Nov)to be open for the public at the Children’s Library Complex Lahore.

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Minister for Education Rana Mashhood have been invited to inaugurate the CLF.

The festivals have been organised by the Idara-i-Taleem-o-Aagahi (ITA) & Oxford University Press (OUP) in collaboration with the Open Society Foundations (OSF).

The teachers’ and childrens’ festivals will be open for everyone  from 9 a.m to 5 p.m.

This was announced at the a press conference at the Children’s Library Complex on Tuesday.

The Teachers’ Literature Festival will be held on November 27, for the first time in Lahore. As many as 30,000 people are expected to show up on CLF and  1,500 to 2,000 teachers are expected to take part in the Teachers’ Literature Festival.

The festival aims to promote reading and critical thinking in classrooms and schools. It will also provide teachers an opportunity to voice their views.

Events at the festival include read-and-sing-along stories, theater, skits, puppet shows, poetry recitals, book launches and plenary sessions and workshops.

CLF Lahore is a free public event; an equalizer for all school systems – government and private sector, non-formal and special needs schools. CLF focuses on reviving a culture of critical thinking and imagination by generating innovative content for textbooks and supplementary materials in classrooms in order to promote reading habits beyond textbooks and tests.

The CLF is not only important for schools & colleges to attend, educational trusts and NGOs are also ensuring their presence in the festival to create awareness about the importance of education amongst people.

Hence, Sabaq Foundation has also grabbed the opportunity to do so. People can come to our stall to know about our cause.

sabaq stallCLF Lahore is going to present celebrities, authors, publishers and well-known personalities. The event will feature interactive readings, discussions, workshops, theatres and art experiences by famous children’s writers, poets and artists.

Baela Raza Jamil, a founding member of the CLF and programmes director at the ITA, said such festivals were part of a social movement to change the country’s education system.“We want to demonstrate what works to capture the hearts and minds of our children, youth, teachers and parents.”

“Educators should take inspiration from festivals like the CLF and integrate them in their daily classroom practices. Some school systems are already replicating these activities” she said.

Zehra Nigah, Haseena Moin, Samina Ahmed, Raza Kazim, Nadia Jamil, Adeel Hashmi, Khaled Anam, Ali Hamza and Zubeida Mustafa among others will participate.

Adeel Hashmi, ambassador for the CLF, said he was honoured to be part of the festival. “In a country where unfortunately education is rarely prioritised, such events are a breath of fresh air.”
