Registration is now open for the International Literature Forum on Audience Development which will be held at Aberystwyth 15-16 April 2016.
The two-day event is being organised by Literature Across Frontiers as part of their Literary Europe Live project. You will further details on registration here. There’s a special subsidised rate for freelancers and individuals who aren’t supported by a larger organisation. A limited number of places is offered at £80 for the two days which is a 20% discount on the full rate. There’s a separate link for the reduced registration rate.
This two-day event will bring together a wide range of industry professionals: arts and culture institutions, literary organisations, festival organisers, venue programmers, publishers, translators and writers from the UK and Europe. It will offer a unique opportunity to network, debate audience development policies and share best practice in the beautiful setting of Cardigan Bay.
The programme will consist of keynote speeches, panel discussion plenaries and parallel breakout sessions, as well as public events. A Creative Europe seminar and networking opportunity is scheduled for the second day and Wales PEN Cymru will hold its AGM in conjunction with the Forum.
The Forum will also mark Literature Across Frontiers’ fifteenth anniversary so join the celebration!
The focus is developing audiences for international literature. In order to promote intercultural understanding through literature and translation, we need to engage and extend audiences for international writing. This Forum will explore approaches to developing live, print and digital audiences for writing in translation, examine and highlight innovative projects and best practices and provide an opportunity to discuss the concept of audience development across different art forms and its application in the field of literature.
