Purple background with Black event logo

More than 250 ICORN writers, artists, and journalists, ICORN city member delegates, political and cultural representatives and sister organisations will gather in Brussels for three days of discussions, workshops, and performances. Organised in cooperation with the Passa Porta International House of Literature, the ICORN Network Meeting will interact with and be followed by the 2023 Passa Porta Festival.

Mary-Ann De Vlieg, Coordinator of the (en)forced mobility working group will be attending the event on behalf of On the Move.

Generously hosted by Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, the City Hall of Brussels (Hôtel de Ville/ Stadhuis), and Passa Porta International House of Literature, the programme of the ICORN NM will include a varied selection of events. Under the thematic guideline of ‘Paper’ and its paradoxical power in building bridges through art and the written word, yet limiting identity and movement, one of the NM’s main topics will be the possibility of crossing borders, both literally and metaphorically.
