The Picture Book Collective is an initiative by a group of artists, curators, storytellers and digital magicians working together under their own management towards shared aims.
Children grow up in our digital world, spending time daily using digital media, but they are not rewarded with the best stories on their devices. Instead they are left with commercial games and videos with little or no cultural quality, as digital enhanced content has proven expensive and challenging to create.
We follow shared ideologies and aesthetic views, thus sharing ownership, risk, benefits and status. Together we produce work, both collaboratively or as individuals, towards exhibiting together on the PIBOCO platform.
PIBOCO was formed to give content creators an easier path towards sharing their work. To scout for new talents and to benefit each other by association, to create a trusted hub for creators and storytellers, insisting on quality digital content for children.
Quality is key and by insisting on ‘handmade digital’ we raise the standards of digital content and provide direct access to a continuous stream of well-known, classical picture books and thoughtfully designed interactive experiences.
