A series of monthly creative and participatory "challenges" to encourage BatB fans to share their inspirations, thoughts, ideas, good humor, memories, creative efforts, and general love of Beauty and the Beast.

CABB's "Father Project" for Winterfest Online

Sadly, 2017 was the year in which we lost Roy Dotrice, the wonderful actor and gentleman who brought us the character of Father on Beauty and the Beast.

This year for Winterfest Online, in honor of Roy Dotrice, CABB will host a collection of Father-themed writings, art, and memories.

We're calling on all members of the BatB fandom to participate in this special project.

Writers and artists are encouraged to share their newly-created stories, poetry, art, videos, and graphics featuring Father.

We're also asking the fandom to share memories, photos, and personal accounts of your interactions with Mr. Dotrice. Perhaps you had the pleasure of meeting Roy Dotrice at a convention? Please consider sharing your photos and memories!

All submissions will be gathered into a collection hosted on the CABB website
and shared during Winterfest Online (February 3 - 11).

Following Winterfest Oline, the Father Project pages
will remain available for viewing as part of the CABB website.
