Being happy with what you have and dealing with setbacks and disappointments are things that can be learned. Adults and children can do this together.
Creativity and imagination can make all of us more resilient. That’s why Talismanneke develops projects that draw from these resources.
Talismanneke promotes a respectful attitude towards all humans as well as the environment.

Talismanneke is a Belgian bilingual (Dutch – French) non profit organisation. We like to work with picture books to start conversations about difficult topics.

In 2017 our first picture book will be available in English, published by JKP. A short presentation in English of the other picture books can be found below and under the “Projects”-tab. We invite you to take a look at the Dutch pages of this website to get a better idea of our work!
