Due to the current travel restrictions and the inability of our artists to travel to New York, all TILT Kids Day events have been postponed indefinitely.

“French in origin, fantastical in concept, and freewheeling in execution”The New York Times

Fun for children and adults alike, TILT Kids Day features adventurous, innovative, and engaging programs in music, dance, visual art, and more from some of today’s most exciting French and American artists.

Ask the big questions in Philosophy for Kids; be awed by stunning visuals and luminous melodies in Paper Plane; learn the art of physical theater in Broken Box Mime Workshops; take in thrilling music and dance at Bounce!; and join the party at Kids Afropeps Ball.

All day long, kids can discover the augmented reality illustrations of Serge Bloch in Mr. Chip’s Big Adventure and will be invited to help create a mural, plus enjoy free snacks and activities in the FIAF Kids Zone.

All tickets are just $5 — attend all six events for a special surprise gift!
