Found in Translation (FiT)

Translating Migratory Experiences into Art

... a proposal by ETKultur to promote intercultural encounters and the necessary empathy to do so...

OPEN CALL   2024


Would you like to write down a migration experience from your life? Would you like to take part in a creative writing process and learn the basic tools for writing creative texts? Join our Found in Translation writing workshops (or coaching sessions).

At the end of the workshops you will have written a chapter of your life story, or an anecdote of it, which will be translated into two languages and will serve as inspiration for an artistic work.

Your story will be a legacy, something you contribute to others experiencing migration and learning new ways of solidarity, empathy and inclusion.

Register and take part in this new project of the association ETKultur.
