And the third selected Basque writer is…

Beatriz Chivite Ezkieta!

The selection committee of the Beste Hitzak–Other Words programme, in a meeting held on the 10th of May, 2017, selected Beatriz Chivite Ezkieta for the third residency of this literature creation project. Chivite will be in Maribor, Slovenia, between June and August of 2017.

A total of three projects were submitted at the third open call, and the selection committee was made up of representatives of Donostia Kultura and the Association of Writers in Basque (Euskal Idazleen Elkartea), as well as University Professor Iñaki Aldekoa.

Other Words is a partnership programme between cultural organisations in European regions which aims to establish a network of creative placements for European writers in small and minority languages.

The following regions and institutions/associations make up the Other Words project: Donostia Kultura (Basque Country), Foras na Gaeilge (Ireland), Association for Contemporary Art X-OP (Slovenia), Youth Forum Bitola (Macedonia) and Ljouwert/Leeuwarden 2018 (Friesland, the Netherlands).

Beste Hitzak–Other Words will run from 2015 to 2019.
