“Whether it’s the small acts of kindness that brighten our daily lives, or the bigger questions of how we help those in real need, we know that a kinder world is a better world.” Axel Scheffler

A longtime friend of the South Ken Kids Festival, Axel Scheffler invites us to imagine a world where everyone is kind. On the release of the book Kind by Alison Green and featuring artworks donated by 38 international illustrators (including himself), Axel Scheffler will introduce his inspiration and connection with the Three Peas charity which supported this initiative. He will then be joined by artists Dorothée de Monfreid, Guy Parker-Rees and Alison Green, who also contributed to the book, for an inspiring live drawing session on the theme of kindness and refugees.

£1 per printed copy of Kind is donated to Three Peas, a charity which provides vital help to refugees from war-torn countries and for which Axel Scheffler is a patron
