· over 100 writers from 37 countries
· 12 weeks on a bus (May to August)
· through 14 European countries with over 50 stops
· over 30 local partners
· dozens of readings, performances, discussions, meetings, workshops
· intermingling, interacting, sharing
CROWD is about meeting each other in literature!
Imagine: if around a hundred authors originating from all European
countries were able to get together to undertake a bus tour across the
continent, simultaneously overcoming the boundaries and borders that
others are striving to rebuild, as well as creating a text together,
then that would surely be a start.
At a time when division and separatism are being preached all around
us and people are starting to live in fear of one another, it becomes
even more important that we come together to celebrate and uphold the
freedom and solidarity that the arts can offer.
CROWD shows us that the world can be different, and that such a world
does not merely exist as a figment of the imagination, but that it can
be made a reality that we can all be a part of.
Literature knows no boundaries!
