Kites From KabulThrough Kites from Kabul, an exhibition of handmade kites inspired by Afghan and Islamic designs, the entrance lobby at the V & A Museum of Childhood will be transformed with a colourful display of paper kites in flight. The kites, made by children in Murad Khani, in the Old City district of Kabul, are displayed alongside photographs taken by Australian photojournalist Andrew Quilty at kite flying sites around Kabul and Bamiyan. There will also be a video by filmmaker and writer Lalage Snow, giving a glimpse into the lives of children living in the Old Town.

Collections showcase all aspects of childhood, from games throughout the ages to a historical look at cots, prams and feeding bottles (including a 19th century ceramic bottle).
