Posted by Nia Davies on 13 January 2016 Literature Across Frontiers

15th – 16th April 2016, Aberystwyth, Wales

Organised by Literature Across Frontiers, Aberystwyth University,
as part of the Literary Europe Live project.

A two-day professional development and networking event in the unofficial cultural capital of Wales, Aberystwyth, the International Literature Forum will bring together people and organisations working in the field of international writing and translation from across Europe and beyond to share ideas, knowledge and best practice.

In order to promote intercultural understanding through literature and translation we need to engage and extend audiences for international writing. The forum will explore approaches to developing live, print and digital audiences for writing in translation, examine and highlight innovative projects and best practices, and provide an opportunity to discuss the concept of audience development across different art forms and its application in the field of international literature.

The programme will consist of keynote speeches, plenaries and parallel outbreak sessions, as well as public events.

Registrations are now open and places are limited.

The Forum is supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, Arts Council Wales and the Welsh Government through Creative Europe Desk UK – Wales.
