Week of the Dutch Language: Literary Conversation

Event date: 10/5/2021 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM Export event

From 2 to 9 October we celebrate the Week of the Dutch Language, an initiative of the Flemish-Dutch cultural house deBuren and the Dutch Language Union (Taalunie). This year is the 7th edition of this week-long event which highlights the versatility and the beauty of the Dutch language and cultures.

We are very excited to bring the Week van het Nederlands to South Africa for the very first time with a programme of different activities, organised by Embassy of Belgium in Pretoria, Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa, Consulate General of Belgium in Cape Town and the Delegation of Flanders, in cooperation with Sasnev, the SAVN and the Vrystaat Kunstefees.

One of the events not to be missed is a literary conversation which takes place on Tuesday 5 October from 16.30-17.30, livestreamed via Facebook on www.facebook.com/vrystaatkunstefees.

Please join us as Nigerian author Chika Unigwe, who lived in Flanders for 18 years, and Dutch poet Alfred Schaffer, currently lecturing at the University of Stellenbosch, look at language and identity and the significance of the Dutch language in their works as author and poet respectively.
