Leeuwarden-Friesland has become UNESCO City of Literature! We’re happy to join the network of cities which already have this title, and so become a permanent member of this creative network.
As a City of Literature we want to make literature (even) more accessible, highlight (minority) languages and stories, and initiate a dialogue through translation. With the experience gained through Lân fan taal (among other projects) we have forged some wonderful new plans. We think that the title of City of Literature fits Leeuwarden-Friesland like a glove. After all, telling stories and writing in your own language is in our DNA!
