MISSION STATEMENT OMNIBUS READING TOUR

Imagine: if around a hundred authors originating from all European countries were able to get together to undertake a bus tour across the continent, simultaneously overcoming the boundaries and borders that others are striving to rebuild, as well as creating a text together, then that would surely be a start.

At a time when division and separatism are being preached all around us and people are starting to live in fear of one another, it becomes even more important that we come together to celebrate and uphold the freedom and solidarity that the arts can offer.

CROWD shows us that the world can be different, and that such a world does not merely exist as a figment of the imagination, but that it can be made a reality that we can all be a part of.

Literature knows no limits!
