Our purpose is to nurture children’s innate creativity and curiosity for the world around them through their experience of the creative arts.

Every child is valued and welcome at Baboró. We are working towards removing barriers facing children and artists and are committed to creating programmes where everyone feels welcomed, feels heard and is represented in our community.

Our Impact

Our 2023 festival reached an audience of 17,314 children and their carers. We are committed to continuing to make our annual festival and all of our programmes accessible to all.
