Imprisoned writers day


On November 15 every year imprisoned writers in the world are acknowledged through “Imprisoned Writers Day” (founded by Swedish PEN). Artists of all kind contribute to focus on the need for support to the victims of the persecuted word. The aim is to collect fundings for the imprisoned and their families.

In connection to “Imprisoned Writers Day”, during the week November 13-20 2017, the art installation “Dancing cranes – for the freedom of words and imprisoned writers” by AnnaKarin Kriström, course administrator at the Centre, will hang in the exhibition hall of the library.
