Poets Roxana Crisólogo and Daniel Malpica talk about Sivuvalo project. Sivuvalo is a multilingual literature project that has been working since 2013 to improve, map, and make visible the position of poets and writers who write in non-dominant languages in Finland. For this purpose Sivuvalo organizes discussion panels, workshops, exhibitions, multimedia literary events and more. It aims to draw the attention of the Finnish literary institutions and cultural policy makers to realize that this is an issue of equality. Writers and poets living in Finland and writing in languages other than the country’s official ones, should have the same rights and possibilities that the authors writing in Finnish and Swedish have.
