What’s Happening in 2021

With the pandemic roller coasting back and forth it was difficult to plan Grasshoppers for 2020. However, we are back with a fully virtual version of the festival for 2021! Now, more than ever, we would like to reach the youngest citizens and share some creativity with them and their carers. Of course, we can reach further with this edition of the festival as it goes online but we hope that preschool and childcare groups open for essential workers will avail of the morning sessions and that families will come online via zoom to meet the international and local experts for some stories, movement and creativity!
