psalm cultural programme

A special series of events has been curated together with the Center for the Humanities and Social Change at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Centred on themes of translation, exile, migration and diaspora, the programme aims to bring the experiences of contemporary writers in exile into focus and to celebrate works in translation. Symposiums, readings, performances and more are being held in several venues throughout the biennale. Special activities for children will also run during the summer months and into the autumn.

All events are free but booking is essential for some venues and will be subject to availability. Please see individual listings for details.
