About CELA project

ArtEZ is an associated partner of Connecting Emerging Literary Artists (CELA), a project co-funded by Creative Europe of the European Union and led by six literary organisations, including EACWP institutions such as Escuela de Escritores (Spain). The project offers a European context to a new generation of literary creators. The only one of its kind in Europe, it brings together 18 emerging authors, 22 emerging translators and 5 emerging literary professionals to show the potential of literature to connect people, to offer a bigger opportunity to small languages and to drive change. Together the participants tackle some of the challenging realities of our age – from increasingly sharp divisions within Europe to a changing book publishing industry – and place them in perspective, share their work, and bridge the gaps between each other, the publishing industry and the European public.
