Literary Programmers Exchange Programme between Edinburgh and Melbourne

Literary Programmers Exchange Programme between Edinburgh and Melbourne

Fri, 08/10/2018 to Mon, 08/20/2018

Edinburgh and Melbourne Creative Cities of Literature are working together to support their literary programmers, in a festival-focused exchange programme. Seven delegates from Melbourne will be visiting Scotland from the 10 to 20 August 2018 to meet local programmers, share best practices and develop positive networks.

The programmers will visit the Edinburgh International Book Festival, attend workshops concerning issues around their practice, and have the chance to make international connections. They will also be visiting Glasgow, Creative City of Music and Dundee, Creative City of Design to explore how best literary programming can involve other art forms. It is hoped the programme will lead to new collaborative projects and more effective paths for international cooperation.

Edinburgh programmers will be selected for a return trip in 2020.
