In 2013 K&C started the international cooperation between cultural partners from four European countries with the project October Children’s Month (OCM).
K&C already had years of experience in organising this project in the northern part of the Netherlands and wanted to invest in the project by creating partnerships with cultural organisations in foreign countries.
K&C successfully found partners in the Cultural Capitals of Europe 2014 and 2016 and the city of Berlin. The partnership with the organisations Ikertze (San Sebastian, Spain), Werkstadt Berlin (Berlin, Germany) and Foundation Riga 2014 (Riga, Latvia) resulted in two intensive years of successful cooperation.
The editions of OCM in 2013 and 2014 were held in every participating region with a great variety of events and activities, such as publications, artist exchanges, symposiums, workshops, meetings, travelling exhibitions, and theatre performances for children and their families.
