The Etxepare Basque Institute is participating in the design of a new project related to poetry that is being launched under the Creative Europe program. The purpose of the project is the implementation of activities for the revitalization of poetry written in minority languages, and the publication of an anthology.

The working group that promotes this initiative met last week in Vienna. As a member of this group, Mari Jose Olaziregi,  director for the Promotion and Dissemination of the Basque Language of the Etxepare Basque Institute, took part in the meetings along with developers, publishers, and heads of cultural institutions from Italy, Great Britain, Slovenia, Austria and Sweden. Together they agreed and planned the first steps of the program.

The Creative Europe program of the European Commission aims to promote cultural cooperation initiatives and support the cultural and creative sector, as well as innovative new business initiatives.
