- O programie
Literary Europe Live is a project of Literature Across Frontiers – European Platform for Literary Exchange, Translation and Policy Debate, established in 2001 at Aberystwyth University, and developed with successive grants from the Culture Programme of the EU. The key aim of the LAF Platform has been to contribute to a vibrant and diverse European literary culture and ensure that it can be experienced by a broad range of audiences across Europe and beyond. Literary Europe Live brings together 17 literary organisations from 13 countries to foster the development and recognition of emerging literary talent and stimulate innovation in live and digital presentation of literature. Its communication and branding strategy will ensure maximum visibility for the Platform as a project which reflects the cultural diversity and shared values of Europe.The Platform will develop the Literary Europe Live quality label to be awarded to literary events in recognition of programming which acknowledges European diversity. The New Voices from Europe initiative will select the most outstanding emerging literary creators working in any genre, whose work will be promoted and translated. Many other emerging literary creators will be featured in live and digital events organised by the Platform across Europe in search for innovative ways to develop audiences for literature. The Platform will utilize digital means to disseminate literary content through existing and newly developed channels, including the online Transcript Review, as well as making the most of the Platform Members’ digital know-how. Literary Europe Live Channel will complement the review format with multilingual video content. Using its extensive overview of the European literary sector, the Platform will build web resources and conduct a survey of European literary festivals, while ts Audience Lab project will provide a forum for audience development debates among literary professionals.
