LAF partners with Sabir Fest 2018

4 October 2018 — 7 October 2018

This year we are partnering with Sabir Fest, the festival of Mediterranean culture and citizenship, as part of our new project Literary Europe Live Plus, to highlight the contribution of refugees and migrants to Europe and the cultural links connecting the shores of the Mediterranean. The theme “riparare l’umano” sums up the festivals concerns and impact.

The Cameroonian writer and performer Eric Ngalle Charles, who has settled in Wales, will spend two weeks in residence preparing a poetry, music and dance performance with the local group Nimba.

LAF Director Alexandra Büchler will speak on a panel “Investing in the Mediterranean” in the SabirMaydan part of this sprawling festival that takes place in three locations, Catania, Messina and Reggio Calabria.
