Sivuvalo – Is this Finnish literature?

The Sivuvalo project has been working since 2013 to improve, map, and make visible the position of writers who write in non-dominant languages in Finland. Sivuvalo works by networking and organising multidisciplinary poetry events to promote collective work among artists and authors. It cooperates actively with different institutions and artists and has formed an informal but active creative community. The high-quality cooperations between different artists turn the difficulties of non-dominant language writers to new solutions of creating art based on literature.

On the video, Roxana Crisologo and Daniel Malpica tell about the Sivuvalo project.
