Cultural Journalists Study Visits

Local Coordinators
Wednesday 20 July 2005


The East Translates East study visits program is part of the Next Page Foundation’s long-term efforts to enhance an economic and infrastructural framework for intellectual, cultural and literary exchange throughout the Central and East European region.

The publishing scenes in the region are still very diverse – some countries have established a strong independent publishing sector while others are still halfway on the transition path. However, the experience of the ETE grants program shows that there is a strong interest in the intellectual and publishing production of the region but that there is also a paucity of channels for information and exchange to sustain that interest. The ETE study visits program aims to fill that gap and provide an opportunity for direct encounters of cultural journalists with the publishing and literary arenas of those countries, as well as to provoke a wider public response.


Next Page provides travel bursaries to journalists from the region to travel and study the publishing industry of another country in the region, meet colleagues, publishers and other actors in the field and write series of articles to be published in their country of origin. Participating countries will be grouped in pairs so that each country both sends journalists and receives visitors.


The local partners, who are responsible for selection of the journalists and arranging the visits, are:
