ICORN will participate at the WiPC annual meeting as observers. The WiPC offers invaluable support to ICORN when it comes to evaluating applications from potential ICORN Guest Writers, and this annual meeting will undoubtedly be an important arena for discussing questions of freedom of expression and support to exiles.
On Wednesday June 3rd, Shahrazad - Stories for Life and Kapittel - the Stavanger International Festival of Literature and Freedom of Expression, co-hosts a literary encounter between several ICORN writers and Norwegian writers at the House of Literature. All the writers participating in "Exile on Wergeland St. - Literary Encounters fro Cuba to Kolbotn" are in some way interested in the subject of exile. Read more about this event here .
Finally, several of the Norwegian Cities of Refuge will participate in a Marketplace of Ideas at Universitetsplassen on Saturday June 6th. To read more about this event,
