The "Tirana Gate 2022" literary festival with the theme

The international festival "Tirana Gate 2022" will turn the capital into an important event for the European book. This festival has as its main theme "Neighbors", those near and far, with discussion panels between European and Western Balkan writers. In thirty years, this region is facing similar stories, separation from totalitarian regimes and stories of escape and expulsion. The director of the International Youth Literary Festival "Tirana Gate 2022" is Irena Toçi and the artistic director is Milena Selimi. Director Toçi says that the festival turns Tirana into an open, welcoming gate of ideas, vision and emotion, not only for authors, but also for all young enthusiasts who become part of this international activity, which has the merit, not just of a festival, but of an artistic atmosphere with all ages. The festival is a project realized by the Book and Promotion Institute within the regional project READ (Regional Network for Intercultural Dialogue) supported by the European Union. The artistic director Milena Selimi says that this year they welcome well-known authors from the Balkans such as Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia, Albania and authors from Turkey, who in the labyrinth of a parallel between personal and national history will tell stories of states and cities, history civilizations and individual lives. "Also part of the festival will be European authors from Slovenia, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, winners of the prestigious international prize European Literature Prize (EUPL), where Albania also participates with 3 of its authors", she says. The theme of the festival The festival October 5-7 has as its main theme "Neighbors" and the artistic director of the festival Milena Selimi says that culture is the only space without borders, where we can move without permission, where instead of opposing we can dialogue even if we don't agree. "From here arises the need to talk to the Other. To know the other means to start respecting them. To respect means to tolerate. To tolerate means to coexist. Coexistence is an element of culture. Transcending geographical boundaries, between disciplines and discussions, becomes possible only if he or she who travels succeeds in displacing internal boundaries. "I am traveling within myself" says Julia Kristeva, the prominent Bulgarian philosopher. Only in these conditions do ideas rise above despair, and to understand this is not impossible. We will talk about the Western Balkans by discussing: Does the past determine the future? At the same time, in different panels, the participating authors will present their creations on other important topics", she says. This year's festival will stand in solidarity with Ukraine, in a dedicated section Ukraine - Stop War, and this according to the artistic director Milena Selimi, bringing several authors through their creativity. The festival has a busy program, which gives the opportunity to follow the beloved, Albanian, or neighboring author. There is an advantage, as some of the participating authors have been translated into Albanian and the reader, if he has not known them, will have one more reason to get to know them and discover them through the festival. The festival will be held in the UNESCO-National Historical Museum hall on October 5, 6, 7. Does the past determine the future?
