Faces of Peace festival

Faces of Peace is a literary festival held during the annual Bled meetings. Alongside to the meeting’s events organized in Bled itself, the Faces of Peace festival takes place simultaneously in various Slovenian cities and rural villages. In the attempt to make poetry approachable, foreign authors accompanied by a Slovenian author or translator, travel across Slovenia and participate in literary events. These generally consist of authors reading in their native tongue. The Slovenian translation is then presented by the Slovenian author or translator and in some occasion even by the audience. As part of Faces of Peace, the writers also visit local schools for readings and workshops.
