Migrations in Reality

Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union
(2019−2021)

Migrations in Reality is a literary translation project implemented by Polica Dubova Cultural and Artistic Association and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

By implementing numerous authors’ and translators’ readings, reading clubs, workshops and webinar for reading club moderators we have been directing readers towards regular reading habits and creativity. Above all, we wish to hand readers knowledge and tools which may help them flourish into emancipated readers and enable them to find Literature that has the power to enrich one’s life.

The invisible margins may become the centre

Migration in its various forms has always been part of Europe’s reality. Nevertheless, contemporary global problems, such as war, climate change and globalization, have amplified the basic human need to find better, safer and more peaceful places to live. Europe’s openness is exemplified by its capacity to accept its fellow men and women regardless of their origin, existential reality and truth, their universal, human dimension.

The selected literature addresses the causes of migration, including the inner migration of those who have been discriminated against, deprived and pushed to the margins of society, dismantling the image of the marginalized as generic beings by portraying their individual stories, identities and distress caused by assimilation and trauma. Our selected authors address readers with their multi-voiced language, and social and psychological complexity. 

Our project rethinks and bridges division to reach mutual understanding, and in doing so the invisible margin becomes the centre, an imaginary space enabling a polyphonic discourse on past experience and real-time perspective; accordingly, the heterogeneous mental landscape beneath the polished surface of society may be seen as our most valuable connective tissue.
