The project aims to create new cultural connections between Slovak and Norwegian literature and their audiences. While exchanging ideas and experiences from both backgrounds, the project finds shared topics of freedom of expression, fighting against extremism and promoting diversity in both societies. The cornerstone of the project consists of the Authors’ Reading Month (ARM). In creating the dramaturgy and choosing our collaborators, the project highlights a gender-balanced programme. Through the planned day camp, the project raises awareness on important topics such as anti-discrimination, diversity and representation of minorities in arts. The day camp will be open to a diverse audience and it will encourage the Roma children from Banská Štiavnica to attend. already highlights socially woke literature and ideas of free speech, freedom of expression, diversity and anti-discrimination. The Norwegian partner Norla is helping to prepare the dramaturgy of the ARM festival and activities to help promote Norwegian literature and initiate new translations of Norwegian books also thanks to Norlas grants. They also take part in the opening of the festival.
