The project’s main goal is the creation of the new literary residency centre in the city of Košice, housed in the childhood home of the writer Sándor Márai. The project also aims at the sharing of experience and learning between the participating organisations and developing the specific professional skills for the management of residency centres. The project also contributes to improvement of the exchanges of the contemporary literatures and writing (in various languages, including in minority languages) and to the wider cultural exchange. A key part of the project are the residency centres’ arts and educational events for the general public and specific target groups. Additionally, project increases the joy and engagement with contemporary literature in various audiences, including those traditionally without access to it. Project also intensifies sensitivity and critical thinking of these audiences vis-a-vis intolerance and xenophobia, which seems to be currently on the rise.
