The Eñe Festival will offer a window onto Basque literature through the Etxepare Basque Institute from 27 to 28 October. Curated by Kirmen Uribe, Basque writers will take part in the festival through different activities ranging from readings set to music to round tables.

The festival, held this year from 14 October to 15 November, serves as a rendezvous for writers, literature, and the reading community. For the second year running, Basque and Catalan will have their own space at the Eñe Festival, with programmes curated by Kirmen Uribe.

With support from the Etxepare Basque Institute, Basque literature will have its space in three events, curated by the writer Kirmen Uribe..

´Munduari Begiratzeko´ ("To look at the world") is a show that combines songs by Mikel Urdangarin and Rafa Rueda with the recitation of poems inspired by the music of Kirmen Uribe, accompanied by the display of animations by Mikel Valverde.
