Event description

Description

How does the work authors are doing in different parts of the world overcome differences in times, places and politics? And what are some the instances of those distances and differences? Writers, photographers and artists will present their work in order to answer these questions in this visual exhibition and panel discussion, which will also highlight how an author’s human, economic and moral rights provide an essential framework which enables us to access, study and appreciate the world’s diverse cultures and to do the essential work of overcoming the obstacles between us.

The themes of this event have been inspired by the work of the International Authors Forum, an initiative working in defence of authors’ rights. The initiative itself has been inspired and guided by Maureen Duffy, whose service as an author and to authors is worldwide. She will kick off the panel discussion. Expect poetry, photography, short documentaries and readings from all around the world, in this multi-faceted event.
