Litteraturcentrum Uppsala is a cooperation between Studiefrämjandet (an NGO for the promotion of culture and informal learning), the region and municipality of Uppsala, the libraries, Swedish PEN, the civil society and literary enthusiasts.
We are building networks and bridges between actors for the purpose of supporting local readership and the regional literary scene. We are based in Uppsala, and are a part of the culture plan of 2013-14 and 2015-2017 of the region.
The concept is a result of the literary activities of Studiefrämjandet and Anisur Rahman, who was the ICORN writer of refuge in Uppsala 2009-2011. We are interested of both the artistic and social effects of literature. We work locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, and have established productive partnerships with several organizations.
