Art of a Child Mobile Library
Our Mobile Library is an all-in-one structure that delivers art and basic literacy skills to children's doorsteps even in places where there is little infrastructure, equipment, services or facilities. Our bespoke vehicle transforms any space making it suitable for performing a wide variety of art and literacy based activities.
