citybooks Utrecht

deBuren collaborates in Utrecht with the Stichting de Vrede van Utrecht (VVE) and the Stichting Literaire Activiteiten Utrecht (SLAU). citybooks Utrecht started on the 1st of April 2010 when South-African author and dramaturge Brink Scholtz took up residence in this city. Jeroen Olyslaegers will stay in Utrecht as of the end of May and Ronald Giebel will make the City One Minutes: twenty-four short films of one minute each, illustrating the 24 hours in a day. Poet Astrid Lampe, a citizen of Utrecht, and poet and translator Onno Kosters who works at the University of Utrecht, will take a look in a couple of interesting neighbourhoods at about the same time: off the beaten track and facing the hard reality of the street. Photographer Lisa van Damme will follow their example in the summer. Davide Longo will also spend part of the summer in the Netherlands. He will stay from the 15th till the 30th of July in Utrecht and will travel subsequently to Amsterdam to stay there in August on invitation of the Nederlands Letterenfonds.
