ICORN NETWORK MEETING 2017
When freedom of expression is threatened, curtailed or outlawed, artists and writers are compelled to find ever more inventive ways to evade authoritarian repression. New forms, new words, new means of resistance emerge at every turn and in every language. ‘In Other Words’, the ICORN Network Meeting in Lillehammer in May 2017, is an exploration and celebration of the resilience of art and literature in the face of a ‘post truth’ world. Join our international network of cities, regions, writers and artists to find out more about the people we protect, the work we do and the future we aim to create together. It happens in Lillehammer from 31 May to 2 June 2017.
Please read the information below and register with the online registration form at the bottom of this page before 15 March 2017.
