Kids’ Own Publishing

Kids’ Own Publishing is a not-for-profit arts organisation – we publish books by kids, for kids. Kids’ Own Artists co-create books with children and their communities that reflect their culture, identity and imagination.

Kids’ Own Publishing was established in Melbourne in 2005, and have since published over 200 children’s books.

Through creative workshops and collaborative activities, we work alongside children and their adults to develop one-of-a-kind publications which are particular to the lives and local practices of each community of creators.

We work in partnership with children and their communities. These could include playgroups, kindergartens, schools, libraries, health services, local councils and arts organisations. We collaborate to design and deliver innovative short and long term creative publishing projects.

We ensure all our work reflects our core values of self-representation, creative expression, co-design and co-creation, creative risk and fun.
