Passa Porta invites foreign authors to undertake a residency in Belgium. The writers are offered the opportunity to work on a manuscript and to familiarise themselves with Flemish and Belgian culture and literature. Passa Porta also sends authors to residencies abroad.
It is the event that no book lover wants to miss: every two years, the Passa Porta Festival invades Brussels. Over the course of a weekend, from 24 to 26 March, more than a hundred Belgian and international writers, whether established authors or new voices, came together to share ideas and their passion for literature in cafés, theaters, bookshops, libraries and other public spaces.
