Exhibitions:

In the exhibition section, Kanoon’s children’s and young adults’ books, some useful entertainments, Dara and Sara dolls, and some children’s photo galleries were exhibited.

Workshops:

Some workshops of painting, handcrafts, Iranian mythological sketches on Aluminum foil, wire and mica, and creating Iranian toys were held.

Films:

Some Kanoon’s films were shown.

Considerations:

Of sidelong programs was the music performed by the Iranian delegates playing Daff, Reeds, and Santour (Iranian musical instruments), which delighted the Lebanese children. In another program, an Iranian child, who has memorized the whole Koran, recited some verses from Koran.

The Lebanese press gave many reports on the event, including the Al-Enteghad, in Beirut, which published an article “Children’s Dialogues Are Louder“.
