Erfurt Pre-school Item Exchange

The Erfurt Pre-school Exchange shares programmes for pre-school magazines from the whole world. Educating, teaching, entertaining…

Producing TV magazines for very young children is a job in its own right:

  • To be visible means that you exist;
  • To be asked for means that you are important;
  • To be given a place in the media shows that you have a place in society.

For the past 30 years, producers of magazines for pre-school audiences have met to exchange their work. Since 2005, the exchange has been hosted by KiKA, in Erfurt, Germany.

It is an occasion to enrich your programmes with input, ideas and savoir-faire from other countries and other cultures. Programmes/items are presented and offered for free to participants on an ‘offer one-take all’ principle. To have the right to take part you only need to offer one or more of your own programmes/items.

The exchange is enriched by the participation and programmes of Asian, Latin American and African broadcasters.
