At a time when Europe’s political landscape is riddled with ongoing crises, there needs to be cultural intiatives in civil society which can promote communication, exchange and understanding. Berlin is not only one of the most important hubs for European politics, economics and culture, but also a place where people of innumerable origins cross paths. This reading will offer the opportunity for authors and audience to discuss topical themes such as migration, borders, language and community with one another.
This event is hosted in cooperation with NACHBARSCHAFTSHEIM SCHÖNEBERG.

A festival of the European network CROWD (CReating Other Ways of Dissemination), as a part of the Europe-wide OMNIBUS Reading Tour (100 Authors, 12 Weeks, 15 Countries).
Eight authors from all over Europe will be travelling to Berlin and staying there from the 26th to the 30th of May, reading all over the city and engaging with the Berlin audience.
The aim of the festival is to show that Literature is no heady intellectual area of art as more and more authors all across Europe take from the reality of everyday life when creating their texts. It is at a time such as the present, when new crises are constantly springing up in European politics, that cultural impulses should exist in society, promoting discourse, exchange and understanding. The festival will therefore seek to emphasise both the relevancy of the everyday reality lived by the authors on the one hand, as well as that of the audience present in different parts of Berlin on the other.
All events are free of charge.
