Event Details

Jasbinder Bilan, Sachi Ediriweera, Nizrana Farook & Irushi TennekoonĀ 

Ā Children are fundamental to our planetā€™s future. Yanik Tissera, co-founder of Parrotfish Collective, leads a lively discussion around how parents and educators can encourage the next generation to be curious about the natural world. He is joined by Nizrana Farook and Jasbinder Bilan, whose childrenā€™s stories are set in richly imagined environments, Sachi Ediriweera, who connects with readers of all ages through his graphic novels, and Irushi Tennekoon, whose short films entertain and educate in equal measure.

About your hostā€¦

The Charleston is a striking Art Deco property on Lighthouse Street in Galle Fort. Once a merchantā€™s home and now a nine-bedroom boutique hotel with a hip bar, itā€™s a top spot for design aficionados. Pick a perch at Charlieā€™s Bar for a coffee or refreshing homemade craft soda after our panel discussion.Ā
