From 2 to 6 September 2019, in collaboration with Moscow International Book Fair (4-8 September), BCBF curated an International Professional Programme on Children's Books including: 

  • the Illustrators Survival Corner, a traditional BCBF space dedicated to the working artist, was featured at the Moscow fair in a special edition:  it looked into the entire production chain from the illustrator's point of view and included areas such as self-publishing and promotion, alongside creativity in design and management of the workplace.
  • the exhibition Drawn Worlds - 1001 Outstanding International Books in Moscow displayed the best international publishing, with over 1000 titles.
  • a conference dedicated to The power of Silent Books, a contemporary topic of great interest, as well as professional workshops for publishers, librarians and teachers.
  • the schedule was completed by a fellowship program that brought seven international publishers and booksellers to the fair and Russian capital.
