Sharing the Wor(l)d – Skupaj v besedi

The Vilenica Festival has been successful at obtaining project funds from the Creative Europe 2014-2020 programme initiative. In 2014 the Vilenica Festival successfully applied for EU funds with the Sharing the Wor(l)d project – a collaborative project with the renowned Irish Cúirt Festival (managed by the Galway Arts Centre) and the Croatian Festival of World Literature  (Fraktura publishing house), revealing the importance and the quality of the festival that has proven itself again and again both domestically and internationally.
The two-year project generated EU funds in the amount of approximately 200,000 EUR. This will enable us to continue to leave a mark in the international realm and plan additional activities, such as residencies for writers, a festival guest exchange, “kitchen readings,” a travelling book exhibition, residencies for young domestic and foreign critics, live broadcasts of domestic literary readings to partner festivals, art exhibitions, literary interviews, round tables, concerts, and various programmes for children and young adults.
