Dialogue Programme for Writers from the Low Countries and South Africa

48 posts

Jakes Gerwel completed his doctoral studies in literature and philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium. This is why the Jakes Gerwel Foundation has partnered with Passa Porta, an international literature house in Brussels, in bringing writers together in a dialogue programme. Two Flemish writers are chosen each year to share a residency with two South African writers. In this way we encourage cross pollination between the writing of writers from different backgrounds and strive to enrich the body of literature here and abroad.
