International Literature Festival Odesa
13 Oct 2023
International Literature Festival Odesa by Istituto Italiano di Cultura Bucarest
Ever since its’ foundation in 2015 the International Literature Festival Odesa (ILO) aims to promote an international dialogue between East and West. Being a major platform for the Ukrainian literary world, the Russian war against Ukraine has forced ILO to use other locations on the Black Sea, like Batumi in Georgia in 2022.
In 2023, ILO will develop a program of multilingual literary readings and cultural and social debates and talks in Bucharest and Timisoara, in collaboration with EUNIC Romania. These events will be hybrid, combining on-site and virtual events. An educational trajectory with schools and universities is foreseen.
The festival will present both renowned and new authors from many EU countries, along with Ukraine as well as Switzerland and Turkey.
Granted: 15.000 euros.
