October Children was created in Drenthe (Holland) in 2001, and since then the growth of this event has been constant, as regards citizen participation (last year 100 organisations and 15,000 families participated in Holland), as well as countries that join the project. As an evaluation of these years, in Holland the figures confirm that cultural consumption has increased by 70%.
