The Bolo Klub

The Bolo Klub for young illustrators is a long-term project that supports an emerging generation of picture-book artists in Switzerland. Over the course of a year, four established illustrators and authors from throughout Switzerland mentor eight aspiring illustrators and help each develop an illustrated book. The Bolo Klub enables participants to exchange ideas and input, provides networking opportunities with professionals from the publishing world, and sets deadlines for completing a book. Illustrators are invited to apply to the Bolo Klub every two years.

The four mentors for 2020/2021 are: Adrienne Barman, Vera Eggermann, Daniel Fehr and Francesca Sanna.
