Hay Festival Europa28 presents 28 women writers – one from each EU country – sharing their visions for the future over three days in Rijeka, 5-9 October 2020. Blending award-winning writers, scientists, performers and artists, participants include novelists Leïla Slimani (France) and Janne Teller (Denmark), travel writer Kapka Kassabova (Bulgaria), poet Asja Bakic (Croatia), actress Lisa Dwan (Ireland), and sociologist Renata Salecl (Slovenia). Each will showcase their work in readings, workshops, performances and debates throughout the city, while an anthology of their work, Hay Festival Europa28: Visions for the Future, will be launched.
As we count down to this big event we invite you to watch a film series which will introduce the project’s themes, participants and goals. Videos will be added weekly throughout September and beggining of October.
