16th – 22nd July,
Voix de la Méditerranée is a festival of Mediterranean poetry that takes place in the village of Lodeve in the south of France. Literature Across Frontiers is delighted to be teaming up with the festival this year. We’re sending two French-speaking British volunteers who will gain hands-on experience in translation and cultural management at the festival.
We’re also linking the festival up with the Ledbury Poetry Festival in the UK. The festival organisers will be able to share knowledge and experience which we hope will lead to a greater diversity in festivals and events in general. We are able to send the Ledbury Poetry Festival to Lodeve thanks to recent funding from Arts Council England as part of our work connecting literary organisers across Europe and the Mediterranean.
