European Literature Night 2017

EUNIC London

Building upon the experience from the previous eight editions of the European Literature Night (ELN) organised each May in the UK and taking into consideration the social, political and cultural context in the aftermath of the results of UK referendum to leave the EU, in 2017 EUNIC London is adopting a regional approach with planned activities in London and in other regions of the UK. The cluster seeks to introduce a new model to broaden the range of audiences, but also to promote language and multilingualism amongst young people and increase European awareness in the regions where majority of the local population voted to “leave” the EU, by working with local organisations and networks.  Whilst running a number of activities in London, in partnership with the British Library, the Royal Society of Literature, and the European Commission Representation in the UK and other local partners, the cluster plans a series of activities also in several UK regions. With the support of the Cluster Fund, EUNIC London wants to further develop the public engagement during the ELN, outreach towards young people and communities outside London, and enrich the content and the diversify the activities.
