A Sea of Words Awards Ceremony

5 November 2012 | Cultural activity | Institut d'Estudis Catalans, Barcelona

The “Sea of Words” competition, in its 2012 call, is being held again with the intention of contributing to the promotion of dialogue between peoples, the exchange of knowledge and experiences between different local and international traditions. In the framework of the European Year of Intergenerational Solidarity, the current edition of the competition is aimed at a theme that values on the one hand the vision and expectations of young people about their future and, on the other hand, contact between the different generations of Euro-Mediterranean societies.

The competition is aimed at the production of stories and narratives whose content is related to the creation, or consolidation, of dynamics aimed at promoting intergenerational solidarity, the evolution of values and societies, and the expression of different sensibilities and realities of young people in the region.

Literary production is a fundamental means of expressing and describing facts, ideas and emotions that can be directly transmitted to and by young people throughout the Euro-Mediterranean region. From this point of view, the aim is to obtain literary stories – based on both reality and purely fiction – that talk about different experiences of young people, parents and grandparents for the future.
