Budapest Workshop Programme The 5K Centre hosted the Dovetail workshop in Budapest. The project participants from the Nottingham Writers’ Studio (UK) and GEDOK (Karlsruhe, Germany) arrived in the morning, both groups were welcomed at the Dominik Panzió (14th district, Cházár András utca 3., www.dominikpanzio.hu). Who was not tired enough, could come with us to visit the city centre, starting with the New York Palace, where Kata used to work.
Petőfi Literary Museum The first programme of the workshop started in the Petőfi Literary Museum (www.pim.hu), which is hosted in the Károlyi Palace, a relic of the capital’s neoclassical architecture and the most important of the 19thcentury aristocratic palaces in Pest. Before the introduction and the creative writing programme we were guided in the palace that has a unique collection of writers’ belongings, manuscripts, books and photographs. The PIM runs the Translation Support Project, which enables foreign publishers to issue books in Hungarian. Besides that, they run a project to buy contemporary authors’ digital rights in a monthly payment form (Digital Academy) and publish them on their website, which is also an interesting practice in the copyright world.
