The aim of the Meeting Literature project is to promote European literature in Pilsen and offer it to a wider public, especially all visitors to the 2015 European Capital of Culture.The idea of the project is collecting books from the whole of Europe, then placing them in coffee houses, bars and other places associated with cultural life in Pilsen.At the same time a map of the city is being produced, showing all these “book corners” so that anyone interested can quickly ascertain where to become acquainted with European literature.
The collections of books in coffee shops are linked to cultural events which since February 2015 have been held every month in the Gallery of the Europa House on the Square of the Republic in Pilsen.
Cultural activities are organised in collaboration with cultural and educational institutions in various European countries. Since December 2014 it has been possible to find in various coffee houses and cultural locations in Pilsen collections of books by authors from all over Europe, both in the original and in Czech translation.
The project is the only one of its kind focusing on multilingualism within the framework of Pilsen European Capital of Culture 2015. The collection now contains approximately 900 books in 12 languages.
Every cultural institution donated a collection containing at least 50 titles.
