Literature is for everyone”
The Special Relationship has been creating and hosting literary events since 2010. Our goal is to create memorable events that celebrate the written word.
We like to collaborate/integrate/mix with other artistic forms (e.g. illustration, video, music, set design, dance, theatre). We want to bring new audiences to literature. We aim to produce unique literary events that include the participation of under-represented individuals and groups. Literature is for everyone.
