passa porta festival 2013


The fourth Passa Porta Festival, which will be held in Brussels between March 20th and 24th 2013, promises four evenings and one day of inspirational encounters, readings and debates with writers, thinkers and opinion-makers from all over the world. In the heart of Europe, a continent where dreams and fantasy are coming under increasing pressure, about a hundred leading authors will make the case for imagination. 
What’s in store: a focus on Arabic literature, with authors who come and report directly on the ‘Arab Spring’; writers for peace, for the right to free expression; writers in the footsteps of Martin Luther King; repressed imagination, but also the erotic imagination; an African lunch, graphic novels, René Magritte, film, football, children’s workshops, walks, tramlines, urban legends, poetry and the hidden places in the city.
The Passa Porta Festival is being organised with the support and collaboration of dozens of partners.
